Email this to someonePrint this page
MEA Risk’s Critical Incidents Tracker reports that despite a relatively quiet week (ending November 30th, 2014), the Sahelian nation of Mali is facing a series of challenges that promise to make governance a very difficult task. From a stability perspective, the country’s CIncidents Index remains dangerously high at 2.54/5.0, maintaining the country as an Extreme High Risk Zone.

The lowering of the numbers is a function of decreasing number of critical incidents by 23.5%, and a reduction of fatalities from 8 to 4.

The North Africa Journal is a leading English-language publication focused on North Africa. The Journal covers primarily the Maghreb region and expands its general coverage to the Sahel, Egypt, and beyond, when events in those regions affect the broader North Africa geography. The Journal does not have any affiliation with any institution and has been independent since its founding in 1996. Our position is to always bring our best analysis of events affecting the region, and remain as neutral as humanly possible. Our coverage is not limited to one single topic, but ranges from economic and political affairs, to security, defense, social and environmental issues. We rely on our full staff analysts and editors to bring you best-in-class analysis. We also work with sister company MEA Risk LLC, to leverage the presence on the ground of a solid network of contributors and experts. Information on MEA Risk can be found at
