European Engagement in the Sahel

European countries have faced complexity after complexity in European and international engagement in West Africa this past year. Mali and Burkina Faso’s ousting of French forces, the liquidation of MINUSMA (the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali), and now uncertainty over Russian paramilitary group Wagner’s involvement in the region.

At this roundtable, European representatives will openly discuss how they would like to operate a strategy that supports sustainable counterterrorism and potential challenges.

Panelists will include:

  • Damien Cristofari, Senior Advisor on European Affairs at the Chancellery
  • Dr. Michael Shurkin, Nonresident Senior Fellow for Atlantic Council’s Africa Center
  • Petr Tuma, Czech Diplomat
