Freedom of expression, in all its forms, is the very essence of democracy. Only with a thriving, free and independent media landscape, we can hold governments, businesses and society at large accountable. And precisely for this fundamental right, far too often, journalists and media workers are attacked, persecuted, harassed, or intimidated for carrying out their work. Most journalists are not wounded in the heat of war coverage, but suffer violence in our immediate surroundings. In 2018 alone, 94 journalists and media staff were killed in work-related incidents as reported by the International Federation of Journalists. Hundreds more have been subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention without ever having been tried in a court.

On 24 October we celebrate the laying of the first stone of the most universal multilateral project in history: the United Nations.


The European Union and its Member States have progressively put in place a comprehensive external migration policy and strengthened the work along the Central Mediterranean route. Saving and protecting the lives of migrants and refugees, breaking the business model of smugglers and traffickers and providing legal pathways, while addressing the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement: these are the aims at the very heart of the EU's policy.

Suite aux dégâts importants provoqués par de jours continus de pluie dans les régions de Koulikoro, Tombouctou, Kidal, Mopti et Ménaka au Mali, l'Union européenne a débloqué 79 millions FCFA (€120,000) de fonds humanitaires pour venir en aide aux personnes affectées par les inondations.

The European Union (EU) and the Council of Europe firmly oppose the death penalty at all times and in all circumstances. The death penalty is a cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment contrary to the right to life. The death penalty means revenge, not justice, and its abolition contributes to the enhancement of human dignity.

Bamako, le 20 septembre 2019 - La Médiation Internationale a pris acte du report de la 38ieme session du Comité de suivi de l‘Accord pour la paix et la réconciliation au Mali issu du processus d’Alger qui devait se tenir le 17 Septembre dernier à Kidal.

La Médiation Internationale appelle l’ensemble des parties maliennes à poursuivre le dialogue afin de créer les conditions favorables à la poursuite sans délais de la mise en œuvre de l’Accord pour la paix, notamment dans la perspective des prochaines échéances internationales. Ce travail conjoint doit permettre d’aboutir rapidement au parachèvement du redéploiement des services sociaux de base, des services de l’état, y compris des éléments des forces de défense et de sécurité maliennes reconstituées dans les régions du nord.

La Médiation internationale réitère son accompagnement indéfectible au Mali sur le chemin de la stabilité et d’une paix pérenne.

On the occasion of the International Day of Democracy, the European Union reaffirms its commitment towards democracy as a fundamental right of every human being. Every woman and every man has to be free to participate to the political, economic and social life of her or his country. No one should fear to speak up, to demonstrate peacefully, to go to vote or to expect fair and inclusive policies from a government. Democracy can only function if participation and trust between democratic state institutions, governments and citizens are guaranteed.
