*develop a guide/charter of good publishing practices to accompany the “Fair Trade book” logo ;
*strengthen and establish inter-professional partnerships.

This workshop will conclude with the launch of the last solidarity co-publishing project : « À quand l’Afrique ? » Joseph KI-ZERBO’s interview with René HOLENSTEIN – on June 17 at the National Archives of Ouagadougou.
