The new publication, that is alos online available (French version), is an important contribution to UNESCO’s action to foster citizens’ media and dialogue between media, particularly broadcasters and civil society groups and to facilitate the creation of associations of citizens.

The Guide describes the context of French-speaking African and Maghreb countries and proposes some good practices correlated with their identities and specific conditions including several approaches, guidance and possible models based on experiences of other regions. “These are useful models for citizens and civil societies to improve their participation in the electronic media”, says Abdul Waheed Khan, UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information.
