On July 13, 2019, SUNY/CID’s US State Department-funded Tunisia project conducted a workshop for the staff of the Tunisian National Assembly (ARP) on facilitating research for parliaments. The workshop was conducted by Mr. Stephen Wise, former Director of Information Management at the UK House of Commons, and the current Chair of the International Federation of Library Associations Section on Library and Research Services for Parliaments (IFLAPARL).
