Access to information, open governance and prevention of corruption

Sfax, April 1-2, 2021: As part of their cooperation program, DCAF and the Ministry of the Interior (Central Unit  of Governance) organized a training workshop on access to information, open governance and the prevention of corruption for the benefit of regional representatives of the Ministry of the Interior in the governorates of Sfax, Gafsa, Gabès and Sidi Bouzid.

The workshop was inaugurated by the governor of Sfax who underlined the importance of the subject of training and appreciated the approach adopted by the Ministry to present its good governance and prevention of corruption program to the regional directorates and involve them in its implementation.

The workshop introduced to participants the legal and institutional framework for preventing corruption as well as the framework governing access to information and open data. It also allowed them to strengthen their knowledge of the principles of governance and prevention of corruption as well as of the preventive actions undertaken by the Ministry of the Interior in this area.

The workshop was an opportunity to discuss the main challenges and possible risks of corruption in the areas of intervention of the departments represented (governorate executives, territorial delegations and Internal Security Forces) as well as to identify the actions to be taken to remedy them.

This project is funded through the DCAF Trust Fund for North Africa (TFNA). Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland finance the Fund. Further information on DCAF is available on the DCAF website or on the DCAF Tunisia website
