Despite the terrible weather, a lot of people showed up for the Mali event last week to listen to Volker Hauck and Leon Jacobs. Volker Hauck explained his research and the complexity of the conflict resolution process and the actors involved in the conflict. Leon Jacobs gave us the perspective of the UN and an insight in the major difficulties and dangers UN forces face every day in the field. We learned a lot from the knowledge and experiences they shared with us, we hope you did as well. Have a look at some of the pictures of the evening and stay tuned for the upcoming Ubuntu lectures in December!
