After the outbreak of an armed conflict in the north of Mali in January 2012, the Mali office of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) has been conducting the nationwide opinion survey Mali Mètre. For the sixth issue of Mali Mètre, surveying began immediately after the signature of the peace agreement between the Malian government and some armed groups on May 15, 2015; it therefore focuses on the perception of this treaty and the proposed institutional reforms, as well as the challenges for the international community to support the peace process.
In the context of the upcoming revision of the mandate of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) by the Security Council, the New York Office of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung held a luncheon in order to present and discuss the findings of Mali Mètre with members of the Security Council and MINUSMA troop contributing countries, as well as experts from the Civil Society.
