DCAF and the DGPR organise a workshop to strengthen the standardization & digitalization process of prison statistics

Tunis, November 27, 2019: Representatives of all Tunisian penitentiary establishments as well as relevant departments of the DGPR met with international DCAF experts to discuss the procedures relating to the collection, analysis and dissemination of prison statistical data applicable in different countries.

 

With a view to elaborating an action plan which aims to reinforce a standardized and digitalized exploitation of prison statistics, the workshop allowed the participants to analyze and evaluate the functioning of the national system of prison statistics through a comparative assessment of other international experiences in this field. French, Moroccan and Portuguese prison administration officials and a Swiss statistics expert shared a variety of models, structures, tools and examples regarding the uniform and digital management of prison statistics.

 

DCAF and the DGPR are committed to implementing a harmonized and digital infrastructure for collecting, analyzing and disseminating prison statistics, which will contribute to the strategic governance of the prison administration.

 

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