Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Laura Seay (Texas in Africa, Colby College)

On Foreign Entanglements, Laura gives an overview of how the ongoing crisis in Mali developed, and of where we stand now that France has intervened in the conflict. Laura notes that the destruction of ancient cultural sites in Mali may be a war crime. Could instability spread from Mali to countries like Mauritania and Niger? Rob asks Laura how it feels to be an “Africa pundit,” and Laura explains how journalists could do a better job of covering Africa. Finally, the not-so-simple question of whether there was just an attempted coup in Eritrea.
