Abstract:Mali's presidential elections were only five weeks away when a mutiny in Kati led to the overthrow of President Amadou Toumani Touré. The country's decline into instability appeared to be rapid, but there had been, over time, a consistent erosion of the country's former standing as one of Africa's model democracies. This briefing explains the political context that set the stage for Mali's ongoing crisis, explores the failings of Malian democracy and the recurrent rebellions in the north, and discusses the domestic politics of the French intervention. It concludes by considering the multiple challenges to the reconstruction of democracy. Notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
