Abstract
What many observers do not appreciate is that northern Mali forms part of the Sahara: an internally coherent social-political and cultural space with a long history of internal political struggles and alliances. National borders within this space are politically disputed and create opportunities for smuggling, but do not in any way restrict the movement of goods or people, allowing fighters to easily move from country to country, with or without the tacit support of state organizations.
