With substantial international assistance, Mali began to emerge in 2013 from a complex political and security crisis. Despite some progress, the underlying causes of conflict and poor governance have not been resolved, and security conditions have deteriorated since mid-2014. These factors pose policy dilemmas for the United States and others seeking to foster regional stability and prevent a new security vacuum and humanitarian crisis from emerging. Congress authorizes and appropriates funding for U.S. aid to Mali and for U.S. support to a U.N. peacekeeping operation. Congress also oversees long-standing U.S. efforts to address humanitarian needs, promote development, and counter transnational terrorism in Mali and across West Africa’s Sahel region.
