A clinical psychologist, aged 27, based in Paris, the youngest son of the former president of Mali, Alpha Oumar Konaré (1992-2002) and of the historian and writer Adame Ba Konaré, his doctoral thesis at Paris-Descartes University was entitled “The Functions of Religious Investment in Islam in Mali”. His clinical approach, focused on the analysis of emotions, is useful to him in his research on anger and hatred in Mali, but also in his activism on behalf of the Fulani people,
particularly as the director of Kisal, the human rights branch of the Tabital Pulaaku International Association, whose purpose is to give a voice to the nomadic communities in West Africa. He regularly contributes to conferences in Africa and Europe on problems related to religion, peace and human rights on the continent.
