International Relations student Iddar Adingad was part of the panel of Africa experts who were called to comment on the Mali crisis on RAI 3’s radio program Mondo today, May 2, 2012. The program, on air every morning and tackling international current affairs issues, focused on the West African State of Mali, where Tuareg rebels are spreading violence and chaos after taking power in the north, following a military coup which overthrew the government in March.
Iddar belongs to a Tuareg nomad tribe and grew up between Mali, Niger, Algeria and Libya before moving to Italy, where he received his high school diploma with the highest grade. He will graduate in International Relations in 2014. Meanwhile, he has been working as an interpreter for the Italian Interior Ministry and has been accepted on an internship in the Emergencies Department of the FAO for 3 months, starting in June.
