Mirjam de Bruijn and Mamadou Togola co-author an article on conflict in Mali

On June 8th Mamadou Togola and Mirjam de Bruijn published the article Les réseaux sociaux dans la dynamique des conflits au centre du Mali: un exemple de journalisme citoyen à travers la plateforme numérique KI in Canadian Journal of African Studies. The article is based on a combination of  netnographic and physical research in central Mali.

The authors address the role of New information and communication technologies in the creation of ethnicized discourses in the context of conflict. They look at the interactions between citizen journalists and audiences by focusing on a specific platform and interpreting the information this community-informed platform publishes. Plenty of examples indicate the importance of ethnicity, and specifically the marginalization and stigmatization of Peulhs, to the discussions on conflict.
