As Mali tries to recover from an armed conflict which was a difficult experience for its people, the issues of security, peace and reconciliation are important current topics. In the process of crisis resolution and national reconciliation initiated by the country's authorities, young people have a vital role to play. Aware of this reality, the partners of Mali, have decided to support the Malian youth . It is in this context that the Bulgarian government, through UNESCO, is financing activities to "empower young people in post-conflict Mali for reconciliation, peace and development through improved access and the use of new technologies of information and communication technologies (ICT)" and through associations and groups operating on the national territory (see website : ).

The Association of Journalists for Peace and Non- Violence (AJPV), part of the project, initiated a series of activities to train, educate and especially to establish direct and indirect discussions on peace, non-violent management of conflict, human rights, cultural diversity and universal values. The debates on these occasions are relayed live on some local radio stations and reported by the press, and then end up on the web-site created for this purpose.

Last week, the AJPV was in Gao to train and educate young people on these issues. The workshop involved twenty young radio hosts who trained for four days to become familiar with the tools of conflict analysis. They obtained a thorough knowledge of the code of ethics and professional conduct governing the profession of journalism and learned to distinguish a medium of peace from a medium of hatred. They learned how to determine the role of the media in the protection of human rights, especially in times of crisis. During the discussions, the facilitators and radio journalists , have become aware of their role for the peaceful environment in the current process of crisis. It remains for them to adopt not only a non-violent communication, but also to initiate awareness programs on peace and national reconciliation.. .
