Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, universally known as IBK, served as Mali's prime minister from 1994 to 2000 before heading the country's National Assembly for five years assuming this role in 2002. Keïta was born in Koutiala in central Mali and was educated at Paris's Sorbonne University and Lycée Askia-Mohamed in Bamako, the Malian capital. He holds degrees in history, political science and international relations. After completing his studies, Keita worked as a researcher at the National Centre for Scientific Research (known in French as Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique - CNRS), a public organisation under the responsibility of the French ministry of higher education and research. Keita returned to Mali in 1986 and worked as a technical consultant for the European Development Fund, launching the first small-scale development programme for the European Union's aid activities in Mali. In the July 28 elections he won the first round with nearly 40 percent of the vote and remains the political heavyweight in the race, having secured the endorsement of 22 of the 25 first-round losing candidates. Model of democracy IBK has campaigned on pledges to restore Mali's honour as a model for democracy in West Africa where political instability is still a problem. Having stood up to strikes and student protests when he was prime minister, he has a reputation for firmness that many Malians believe is needed to restore the rule of law across the divided nation. A nationalist with a popular touch, Keita has avoided strongly criticising the leaders of a March 2012 coup which overthrew former President Amadou Toumani Toure, amid widespread frustration at his government's corruption and failure to tackle poverty. He withdrew his RPM party from an anti-junta coalition in May 2012, saying that the handling of the Mali crisis had infringed upon national sovereignty. He has pledged "zero tolerance' for corruption - echoing the words of coup leader Captain Amadou Sanogo. A founding member of the AD"MA party, historically Mali's largest, Keita befriended Alpha Oumar Konare, who was elected president after Traore was toppled in a 1991 coup. Konare then promoted him steadily from ambassador to Ivory Coast, to foreign minister and ultimately prime minister. Keita quit ADEMA to found his own party, finishing third in the 2002 presidential election won by Toure, the president who was toppled a decade later. Peace deal opponent IBK has been an outspoken opponent of a 2006 peace deal with Tuareg separatists that partly demilitarised northern Mali, which critics said contributed to the current crisis. He was Toure's main opponent in the 2007 elections, winning 19 percent of the vote. For almost two decades, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita was part of the political elite in Mali. He tried to become president twice, but without success. As he is now 68 years old, this Sunday's run-off election is expected to be his last attempt. IBK is also well connected in the donor community. "He is known throughout the donor community and always maintained a dialogue with us, even when he didn't hold any position," according to Richard Zink, head of the delegation of the European Union in Bamako. This, Zink says, is important for a country whose economy has stagnated since last year's coup. At the last donor conference for Mali in Brussels in May 2013, the EU pledged $691m in financial aid for the years 2013 and 2014. The money is desperately needed for the country to get back on its feet again.

Deadly bombings are still all too common, sectarian violence has soared and all-pervading corruption means that massive inflows of aid and oil income have made very little difference to crucial issues like security, healthcare and power availability. Now, Iraqi lawyer Zaid al- Ali sets out why and how the post-occupation Iraqi government has failed to achieve legitimacy or improve its citizens' lives. He argues that the ill-planned US intervention destroyed the Iraqi state, creating a black hole which corrupt and incompetent members of the elite have now made their own. In particular, al-Ali demonstrates how Iraqi politicians and the political system have failed to address Iraq's problems. Zaid al-Ali has been practicing law since 1999, specializing in international commercial arbitration and comparative constitutional law. He has law degrees from Harvard Law School, the Université de Paris I (Sorbonne) and King's College London.

Jean Ziegler (French: [ziglɛʁ]; born April 19, 1934 as Hans Ziegler) is a former professor of sociology at the University of Geneva and the Sorbonne, Paris. Currently member of the Advisory Committee to the United Nations Human Rights Council. He was a Member of Parliament for the Social Democrats in the Federal Assembly of Switzerland from 1981 to 1999. He has also held several positions with the United Nations, especially as Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food from 2000 to 2008,[1] and as a member of the Advisory Committee of the UN Human Rights Council from 2008 to 2012. Jean Ziegler has authored numerous works, is a lecturer, and is well known for this sentence: "A child who dies from hunger is a murdered child."[2] Thomas Isidore Noël Sankara (French pronunciation: ​[tɔma izidɔʁ nɔɛl sɑ̃kaʁa]; 21 December 1949 – 15 October 1987), born Thomas Isidore Noël Ouédraogo,[1] was a Burkinabé military captain, Marxist revolutionary, pan-Africanist theorist, and President of Burkina Faso from 1983 to 1987.[2][3] Viewed by supporters as a charismatic and iconic figure of revolution, he is commonly referred to as "Africa's Che Guevara".[2][4][5] Sankara seized power in a 1983 popularly supported coup at the age of 33, with the goal of eliminating corruption and the dominance of the former French colonial power.[2][6] He immediately launched one of the most ambitious programmes for social and economic change ever attempted on the African continent.[6] To symbolize this new autonomy and rebirth, he renamed the country from the French colonial Upper Volta to Burkina Faso ("Land of Upright Man").[6] His foreign policies were centered on anti-imperialism, with his government eschewing all foreign aid, pushing for odious debt reduction, nationalizing all land and mineral wealth, and averting the power and influence of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank. His domestic policies were focused on preventing famine with agrarian self-sufficiency and land reform, prioritizing education with a nationwide literacy campaign, and promoting public health by vaccinating 2.5 million children against meningitis, yellow fever, and measles.[7] Other components of his national agenda included planting over ten million trees to halt the growing desertification of the Sahel, doubling wheat production by redistributing land from feudal landlords to peasants, suspending rural poll taxes and domestic rents, and establishing an ambitious road and rail construction program to "tie the nation together".[6] On the localized level Sankara also called on every village to build a medical dispensary and had over 350 communities construct schools with their own labour. Moreover, his commitment to women's rights led him to outlaw female genital mutilation, forced marriages and polygamy, while appointing women to high governmental positions and encouraging them to work outside the home and stay in school even if pregnant.[6] In order to achieve this radical transformation of society, he increasingly exerted authoritarian control over the nation, eventually banning unions and a free press, which he believed could stand in the way of his plans.[6] To counter his opposition in towns and workplaces around the country, he also tried corrupt officials, "counter-revolutionaries" and "lazy workers" in Popular Revolutionary Tribunals.[6] Additionally, as an admirer of Fidel Castro's Cuban Revolution, Sankara set up Cuban-style Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDRs).[2] His revolutionary programs for African self-reliance made him an icon to many of Africa's poor.[6] Sankara remained popular with most of his country's impoverished citizens. However his policies alienated and antagonised the vested interests of an array of groups, which included the small but powerful Burkinabé middle class, the tribal leaders whom he stripped of the long-held traditional right to forced labour and tribute payments, and France and its ally the Ivory Coast.[2][8] He was overthrown and assassinated in a coup d'état led by Blaise Compaoré on 15 October 1987. A week before his assassination, he declared: "While revolutionaries as individuals can be murdered, you cannot kill ideas."[2]
