(Ne pas) dialoguer avec les groupes « jihadistes » au Mali ?Étude de Cas

Au Mali, dès la fin de l’année 2012, la question du dialogue avec les groupes d’expression jihadiste, labélisés terroristes, a constitué une sorte de zone grise, voir un tabou qui cristallise et interroge les contradictions normatives et pratiques des régimes d’exclusion ainsi que leur impact tant sur la trajectoire de la violence que sur la résolution du conflit. A ce titre, le contexte malien fait face à une situation historique tout aussi complexe qu’inédite.

Mapping of Local Governance in Yemeni Governorates

This mapping outlines the situation faced by the population in all 22 governorates of Yemen. We see this as a working draft and welcome any additions, corrections, or comments you might have.

The mapping highlights the economic activities and resources that remain available and introduces the local administration and the situation of the local council in each governorate. It explores the extent to which different institutions of local authority — local councils, executive offices, and governors’ offices — continue to perform their mandates, and provides an overview of the availability of basic services, especially in the health, education, and water and sanitation sectors. The mapping is based on the review and analysis of documents, statistics, and official reports by Yemeni and international organizations, published studies and research, and interviews with local leaders in the governorates.
