Strengthening democracy in Tunisia: fair and balanced media coverage during elections

A three-day long ‘training of trainers' session on fair media coverage during elections was organised from 6 to 9 September 2011 in Strasbourg, as part of the Council of Europe's assistance to Tunisia. The training programme, organised by the Venice Commission and the Information Society and Media Division, was part of the assistance activities established by the organisation following Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland's February visit to Tunisia.

Within the programme, the participants also met French and German journalists, as well as Secretary General and other representatives of the Council of Europe and the local authorities. This training is funded by the Dutch government.
