DCAF and Réseau Alternatif des Jeunes (RAJ) organise a training workshop for 42 volunteers as part of their joint project “Active youth for security”

Hammamet, from 19 to 21 January 2018: In the framework of their joint project “Active Youth for Security”, the Réseau Alternatif des Jeunes (RAJ) and DCAF organized a two-day training workshop for forty-two volunteers to conduct interviews on security needs of young people aged between 15 and 29 years old in six Tunisian municipalities - Bizerte, Ariana Ville, Monastir Metlaoui, Kasserine and Tataouine.

 

This training workshop enabled the participants to become familiarized with the concept of human security and identify related needs in their respective region. It also aimed at presenting them the content of the questionnaire covering different security aspects (political, physical, sanitary, socio-economic) and raise awareness about good practices in investigations. In preparation for fieldwork, two experts conducted simulated interviews with the volunteers, thereby giving them clear instructions and feedback.

 

The survey’s results will be summarized in a final report which will be submitted and discussed with relevant authorities in the targeted municipalities.

 

This project is part of DCAF’s strategic objective to strengthen inclusive dialogue on security needs and policies in Tunisia.

 

The project “Active youth for security” is funded by DCAF's Trust Fund for North Africa (TFNA). The donors are Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland.
