The Future of Transatlantic Cooperation in the Sahel
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), in partnership with the Network of Strategic Reflection on the Security of the Sahel (2r3s), is hosting a breakfast discussion on the future of transatlantic cooperation in the Sahel with Jérôme Pigné, president and co-founder of 2r3s, and Jean-Pierre Bat, Africa analyst at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Since the 2013 intervention in Mali, France has been highly engaged in the Sahel. Along with her partners in the G5 Sahel (Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Chad), France has become the primary security provider in the region. French operations have benefited greatly from allied assistance, notably in the key areas of intelligence, reconnaissance, and strategic airlift.
What is the future of this transatlantic cooperation in the Sahel region? What are the implications for defense and security cooperation between Paris and allied capitals, notably Washington?
This event will be held in GMF’s Paris office and the discussion will be in French. This event is upon invitation only. For more information, please contact Jackson Webster: firstname.lastname@example.org.
