Practical exercices allowed the 17 participants from various governorates in Tunisia, including Tataouine, Gafsa and Kasserine to:

 

-   improve their knowledge of the numerous working tools available on the Internet to better cover good governance issues in the security sector in general and more particularly in Tunisia;

 

-   Become acquainted with the tools and techniques facilitating the research, monitoring, verification, and authentication of the data published on the Internet and social media;

 

-   develop knowledge of data visualisation tools.

 

The support provided by DCAF to Tunisian journalists is part of its efforts to provide communication support and enhance information sharing.
