Fondation Hirondelle is a Swiss-based foundation created to support independent and sustainable news media in conflict and post-conflict areas.  Fondation Hirondelle’s staff is international and local journalists committed to credible and impartial reporting.

Using a PeaceNexus Innovation grant, Fondation Hirondelle seeks to explore the impact of its Malian radio programme, Studio Tamani. With the support of PeaceNexus, an innovative study mixing content analysis and qualitative interviews has been designed. Implemented in 2016, this study aims to uncover whether (and to what extent) Studio Tamani’s programmes lead to different understandings and perceptions about the Malian conflict and peace process among its listeners and participants.
