Event Description

Mali's Islamic religious leaders generally refrained from participating in electoral politics following Mali's transition to democracy in 1992 but over time came to play an increasingly active role in shaping the country's moral debates. This presentation will address why they have chosen these particular political strategies instead of the more active electoral engagement strategies chosen by Islamic leaders in north Africa.
