Third meeting for further strengthening of the relations between Tunisian media and the National Army

Third meeting for further strengthening of the relations between Tunisian media and the National Army

Tunis on May 17, 2019: In partnership with the National Defense Institute, DCAF organized a short session where militaries and journalists had the opportunity to meet and discuss the realities of communications in times of crisis.

 

To this effect, DCAF mobilized two experts: one journalist and one general. These experts presented their respective views on best practices related to civil-military relations and communications, particularly in time of crisis.

 

Roughly 25 journalists from various Tunisian media participated in this activity. Representatives of the National Defense Institute as well as senior-level communication officers from the Ministry of National Defense were among the audience.

 

This session is the third edition of this activity. In recent years, DCAF was able to witness more mutual understanding between journalists and militaries. Both sides expressed hope in that sense, even trust building remains a challenge. DCAF remains an important partner to both parties.

 

This project is funded 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 DCAF website or on DCAF Tunisia website.
