Learning for Peace, Côte d’Ivoire: Transitional Justice Radio

This project is part of UNICEF’s Learning for Peace programme. UNICEF has worked with young people across Côte d’Ivore to set up the “Action Justice and Peace” Network to engage in national reconciliation processes and train youth leaders to document young people’s experiences of the recent conflict. The network represents approximately 5000 members across the country, and young people have been trained in radio programming to share these stories and messages of peace with a mass audience, and encourage non-violence in the lead up to the next election at the end of 2015. Ouattara Adama, who is sharing his experience of taking up arms during the last violent conflict, said the project helped him forget many things and hopes his story will change their behavior and promote peace.
