Ep64. A conversation with Hannah Armstrong on politics in Algeria, the Sahel, illicit trafficking and borders

In this week’s episode, we talk about Saharan Futures, protests and political change in Sudan, political maneuvering in Senegal, and what Cyclone Idai teaches us about governance of disasters and in urban spaces.

Our featured guest this week is Hannah Armstrong (@brkinibeachriot), the Senior Sahel consultant at the International Crisis Group. She has worked across North Africa and the Sahel as a writer and researcher for various publications and organizations since 2006. She served as a Fulbright fellow in Morocco and as a fellow of the Institute of Current World Affairs in Niger, Mali, Mauritania, Burkina Faso, Algeria, and the Western Sahara from 2012 to 2014.  Rachel spoke with Hannah earlier this week when she was visiting Chicago from Dakar, where she is based. Their conversation begins at 13:03.

  1. People that support a anti black Africans aljazeera media network should only speak on behalf off their own kind not about black Africans issues such has black people issues only you you albinos nd dirty arabs are evil when it comes to black Africans reporting

    Aljazeera is an evil organisation towards black Africans nations nd it’s people

    Shame nd disgusting to people like you nd others would endorse such anti black media that would continue to demonise nd marginalised nd stigmatised nd dehumanise black Africans everyday on their so called media network
