    web : http://www.forum-gouvernance-mali.org

    “A baobab beneath which we can exchange ideas, learn and build”

    The Multi-actor Forum is a Malian process that grew out of the international colloquium entitled ‘Between tradition and modernity: which governance for Africa?’ organised in Bamako in 2007 by the ARGA (Alliance for rebuilding governance in Africa), IRG (Institute for research and debate on governance) and the CEPIA (Centre for political and institutional expertise in Africa). It is an open and informal space for dialogue where the viewpoints and imaginations of Malian and foreign actors can come together to examine the current governance situation in Mali and identify the means of action and reflection likely to lead to a re-construction of governance anchored in the country itself. The Forum has already held two debates, one on access to basic public services (December 2008) and another on access to justice (July 2009). It will meet in November 2009 to address the issue of the electoral process in Mali.

  • Ecole de la paix (the ‘Peace school’)

    The Ecole de la paix is simultaneously a centre:

    • For mediation and solidarity—a meeting place for international and local initiatives to build peace.
    • For pedagogical assistance and aids: the Ecole organises workshops in schools and provides pedagogical tools and information teachers can use to encourage respect for others.
    • For research: analysis of conflicts, reconversion of arms industries, conditions of minorities, compensation for trauma, culture of peace, etc.
    • For disseminating documentation and information.
