Ep72. A conversation with Susanna Wing on intergroup violence and instability in Mali

In this week’s episode, we start with news about LGBTQ rights in Botswana, Russian interference in African countries’ domestic politics, and east African governments announcing increased spending on infrastructure. We also mention the upcoming book launch for Jeffrey Paller and Noah Nathan’s respective books at CDD-Ghana on June 19th.

This week’s conversation is with Susanna Wing (@SusannaWing), associate professor of political science at Haverford College. She is author of the award-winning book, Constructing Democracy in Transitioning Societies of Africa: Constitutionalism and Deliberation in Mali, that was later published in paperback in 2010 as Constructing Democracy in Africa: Mali in Transition. Earlier this week Susanna wrote a helpful explainer piece about the recent violence and instability in Mali, which we talk about in this week’s episode. Our conversation begins at 11:11.
