SPEAKING IN:

Networking Session: The New Silk Road: A Route of Peace
27 April

Ali Moussa Iye joined UNESCO in 1997 and is currently responsible for two major UNESCO projects, “General and Regional Histories” and "The Slave Route". The first project focuses on the pedagogical use of the “General History of Africa” in order to develop common educational content such as textbooks, teacher guides, historical Atlas, glossaries and other teaching tools, for African schools across the continent. "The Slave Route" is an international and interdisciplinary project aiming at breaking the silence on the tragedy of the slave trade and its consequences, and at promoting the contribution of people of African descent to the modern world.
