Robin Edward Poulton was guest of Liz Humes on her weekly book review show, Wordy Birds, on September 13, on Richmond Independent Radio, WRIR lp 97.3 FM and WRIR.ORG.
Robin Poulton is the co-chair of the VCU conference Women War and Peace. His book is called A Peace of Timbuktu: Democratic Governance, Development and African Peacemaking. It’s about his involvement in peace making and the small arms disarmament that ended a 1996 Tuareg rebellion. He is the vice president of Virginia Friends of Mali and he’s worked with the United Nations in Geneva disarmament research and written about disarmament issues in Sierra Leone and Liberia, Cambodia and Afghanistan. On this show, Robin explains the Tuareg conflict and provides insight as to why resolution is such a difficult thing for Mali to achieve.

Zakiyatou Oualett Halatine was featured on Lightly on the Ground Radio, Wednesday, October 2, on Richmond Independent Radio, WRIR lp 97.3 FM and WRIR.ORG."This is an unusual Lightly on the Ground episode in several ways," says host Patricia Stansbury. "My guest is Zakiyatou Oualett Halatine and she speaks with us over the internet from Mauritania where she has lived as a refugee since much of her town, including her home and business were burned on February 1, 2012. The audio is inconsistent, but what she says is well worth listening closely. She tells us how to build a sustainable business, what it is like to be barred from returning to her homeland, and the difference between the way men and women conceive of starting a microenterprise."
