Working together for Burundi's Truth and Reconciliation Commission

Working together for Burundi's Truth and Reconciliation Commission 14 October 2013

Seven main radio broadcasters and one newspaper are being persuaded to collaborate and report upon the TRC's work in the country.

The AKHISE KADASORONGOYE project concept works through and with the media, as a tool, to facilitate a network of journalists from different radio stations and a newspaper that are accompanied and trained throughout the total duration of the T&R period. These journalists come from a wide variety of independent media with different socio/politico backgrounds to be integrated into a team. The educational concept draws upon the “learning by doing” principle and enables different media to deal in a harmonised, more reflected way, on core issues that can destabilise the society, by opening up the delicate questions around the truth and responsibility of the different ethnic-politico conflicts that have influenced Burundi from its date of independence (1st of July 1961) till December 2008.
