Funder: Bureau of International Narcotics-Law Enforcement
Due Date: 2/28/2018
INL is part of the Department of State’s multi-faceted response to transnational criminal activity. Dedicated to strengthening criminal justice systems, countering the flow of illegal narcotics, and minimizing transnational crime, INL plays a key role in leading the development and synchronization of U.S. international drug and crime assistance. INL’s technical support is tailored to bolster capacities of partner countries through multilateral, regional, and country-specific programs. Mali’s history of internal rebellion, weak security and justice institutions, and ongoing risk of terrorism threaten U.S. interest in Mali and the region. Despite the 2015 Peace Accords, weak capacity, political challenges, and ongoing insecurity continue to jeopardize Mali’s path to a more stable future.
