David Dembélé is a journalist with 10 years of experience in Malian media. He is currently working as an editor for Dépêches du Mali. He has a passion for investigative journalism and is a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). He mainly works with Malian and French media on transnational subjects and the changing social landscape in Northern Mali. He saw firsthand how the reality on the ground is, that the war against terrorism has changed the Malian social landscape, where part of the northern population was forced to leave their natural environment. He mainly gathers important information that reveal the pernicious aspects of the humanitarian situation, far from improving in northern Mali.
