Institut Malien de Recherche Action pour la Paix

Who are we?

The Institut Malien de Recherche-Action pour la Paix (IMRAP) was created on October 31, 2013 as an association following the multi-faceted crises (notably security and institutional) that Mali experienced in 2012. IMRAP’s main objective is to contribute to the renewal of a harmonious will to live together and to the entrenchment of dialogue as a mechanism for facing challenges and seizing opportunities for the consolidation of peace, reconciliation and social cohesion.

Thus, from November 2013 to December 2014, in partnership with Interpeace, and with funding from the European Union and the Embassy of Denmark, IMRAP crisscrossed Mali and the refugee camps for the purpose of a study on obstacles and opportunities for peace. This exercise, which was the first phase of the “Agenda for Peace" program, led to a report entitled “Mali’s Self-Portrait on Obstacles to Peace.
