Abstract:This article traces the evolution of conflict between students and the government of Mali since the end of the Traoré regime in April 1991. It focuses on the violent conflicts of December 1995 and January 1996 and the peaceful resolution of these conflicts. It looks at the internal politics of the Association des élèves et étudiants du Mali (AEEM) in order to show that the AEEM has pursued a tactical transformation and has begun to emphasize non-violent confrontation. It also provides a brief overview of AEEM activities during the 1996/1997 school year. The conclusion is that a strong AEEM is a potentially healthy part of Mali's civil society and a vital element of Malian democracy. Bibliogr., notes, sum. in English and French.
