19 participants, including members of HAICA’s board took part to practical exercises which aimed to:

 

-   explore the work tools available on the Internet that could be used for a better monitoring of Tunisian audiovisual media, with a focus on good governance of the security sector;

 

-   introduce the participants to tools and techniques facilitating the research, monitoring, verification, and authentication of data published on the Internet, social media, and media websites;

 

-   acquire a better understanding of how to use data visualization tools to graphically present data collected.

 

The support provided by DCAF to the HAICA is part of its strategic objective to provide communication support and enhance information sharing.
