Abstract

The colonial legacy of national borders in the Sahel remains a barrier to the Tuareg ethnic group’s aspirations for emancipation, thereby increasing tensions in a region known for difficult climactic conditions and food insecurity. Niranjan Jose writes of the need to establish an area for Tuareg autonomy, and fostering dialogue with local communities to resolving the region’s development challenges.
