Why Peace Talks Fail In Africa | Foreign Affairs

Why Peace Talks Fail In Africa | Foreign Affairs | African Conflicts | Scoop.it
As a new wave of violent conflicts has ravaged Africa, borders and conventional peace processes have done little to contain them. A cold war between Ethiopia and Eritrea has spilled over into Somalia, where Eritrea has supported the jihadist group al Shabaab in its fight against the Ethiopian-backed government in Mogadishu.

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections

Racism in Mali and the Upcoming Elections | African Conflicts | Scoop.it
We tend to underrate the importance of racism as a factor in the ongoing crisis in Mali. A short item from Radio France Internationale–English is a good reminder.
Afrikasources's insight:

The war may almost be over but the situation is still quite confused.

Ann Tan's curator insight, July 16, 10:57 AM

Racism is one of the main cause to prejudice. I think that what MNLA is doing is wrong, they are bias towards the 'whites' which would raise the racial tension among the Africans. I think that fair and equally treatment among the Africans is very important. This is to bring harmony among them. I strongly think that the skin colour does not matter, and that they should learn to accept one another. I believe that without racism, it would resolve many conflicts and prejudices happening around the world.

Navas Ibraahim's curator insight, July 16, 11:02 AM

Racism is actually a belief that inherent differences among the various human races that determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others. I strongly think that Mali should treat everyone in their country equally regardless of race or colour. Most human conflicts are caused mainly due the race factor which creates destruction and many social problems. In my perspective, I think that no one should judge anyone by looking at the colour of their skin tone or their race. It is who they really are that matters.

 

Ong Meng Kiat's curator insight, July 17, 9:55 AM

This is a saddening story to see that discrimination is still so prevalent. Mali should learn to see everyone as the same kind, so that everyone can be happy and advance as a country at the same pace. It would do not good if we are fighting a "civil war" in our country as no one will stand to gain. Easing up tensions in Mali and having peace is the best remedy.
