BfB in the media

Since Mali’s political crisis erupted in March 2012, I’ve been contacted and quoted by journalists from various print, television, radio, and web outlets, including the Associated Press, France 24, Radio France International, Time magazine and the Voice of America. Below you can find links to some of the stories available online that refer to my analysis or to this blog.



  • BBC World Service, “Africa Today” (analysis of recent insecurity begins 7 min. 25 into the show)

    Hallo Bruce,
    I always enjoyed and appreciated a lot your blog. Just to let you know: I wrote an article for an Austrian newsletter and referred to your thought on the legitimacy of power not democratically elected: (3rd last paragraph), there is also a link to your blog.
    Good start at home, we have returned to Austria end of March, Elisabeth

    Thank you Bruce for your analysis. I do the same in Dutch but cannot write like you. I lived for 25 years (1985-2010) all-over Mali and saw how Malian society developed itself and was developed and worked for USAID in Gao during the early nineties on emergency through WV and other US VPO’s. Try now to write a book on that period. Malians are masters in surviving but also masters in how to please donors. Sometimes I felt shame to come from a donor country.

    I listen to Africa Today from the BBC and I heard you on there when I listened to yesterday’s podcast, September 27th, 2016. That was cool! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog for the last few years. I’m an American in Mali since 2009.

      Thanks Erin – was it “Focus on Africa”? They interviewed me on Tuesday after the Al Faqi Al Mahdi sentencing. It had been a longtime dream of mine to get a call from Focus on Africa!
