Washington Woman

LSA and Public Policy Prof
Edie Goldenberg was director
of the Public Policy School from
1987 to 1989 and the dean of LSA
from 1989 to 1998. Goldenberg is
the founding director of the Mich-
igan in Washington Program,
which is in its eighth year.
What attracted you to
political science?
As a sophomore, I took a
wonderful course that made
me switch majors from math
to political science. It was an
interdisciplinary social science
class team-taught by four dis-
tinguished senior leaders in a
newly established Department
of Political Science at MIT. One
of them, Ithiel de Sola Pool,

became my adviser, and my
interest in the field just kept
growing. Michigan's Political
Science Department is one of
the very best in the world. Being
part of it has only enhanced my
interest in the field. Ever since
coming to Ann Arbor, I have
been involved in both Political
Science and the Ford School.
What is your role as the direc-
tor of the Michigan in Wash-
ington program?
I am responsible for pro-
gram design, requirements,
and evaluation; curriculum;
student recruitment, selection,
preparation and recognitions;
faculty and staff selection and
evaluation; program budget,

including student scholarships,
fundraising and development
of opportunities for program
enrichment.
All of this requires teamwork
and we have a great program
team, including staff in Ann
Arbor and in Washington, D.C.,
a faculty advisory committee,
an advisory board in D.C., stu-
dent volunteers and program
ambassadors, advisors and stu-
dent-oriented staff, key faculty
and deans in various schools

hots. the situation was under control

Monday afternoon and blamed
the unrest on elements close
to Col. Youssouf Traore, who
has had a strained relationship
with Sanogo. Coulibaly said the
soldiers accused Col. Mohamed
Elhabib Diallo of taking their
names off a list of those who
were to be promoted.
However, another Malian
military official said that Diallo
had been wounded by gunfire
after the angry soldiers took
him hostage.
The tensions on several
fronts underscore the enor-
mous challenges for new Mali-
an President Ibrahim Boubacar
Keita, who took office in Sep-
tember after winning the elec-
tion in an August runoff. In
an acknowledgement of those
obstacles, Keita has made rec-
onciliation a priority for his
new government, even naming
a minister responsible for the
effort and for developing the
north.
Talks were to resume
between the two sides in Burki-
na Faso later this year. How-
ever, the rebels accused the
government of failing to make
good on its promises under the
deal.
Separatist sentiment remains
high in Kidal, and the presence
of the Malian soldiers since
June has been highly contro-
versial.
Tuaregs in northern Mali
have sought autonomy dating
back to the country's indepen-
dence from France in 1960. The
government has put down sev-
eral rebellions over the years,
though the one sparked in
early 2012 allowed separatists
to make their greatest gains to
date.
After the March 2012 coup
in the capital, al-Qaida-linked
jihadists also sought to control
northern Mali and temporar-
ily sidelined the separatist reb-
els. After a French-led military
intervention ousted the radical
Islamic militants from power,
though, the NMLA began reas-
serting itself in Kidal.
