Presentation

Given the key role played by radio in social cohesion and inter-community dialogue, RFI (Radio France Internationale, part of France Média Monde), CFI and the URPCI are working with local radio stations to help them play their part in the reconciliation process and the prevention of conflict.

With this in mind, "Radio Dialogue" is helping to strengthen management skills within radio stations, assisting them in the production of magazine programmes focusing on the peace process and the prevention of inter-community tensions, and encouraging the exchange of programmes within the network.

This project also aims to strengthen the management and network coordination capabilities of URPCI, to enable it to better represent the interests of its members at national level.
