Workshop in Tunisia orchestrated by SUNY/CID

Workshop Attendees

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).

The workshop focused on international best practices in answering inquiries from Members of Parliament (MPs); preparations of briefings and reports for MPs; policy analysis and preparing research for the use of parliamentary committees. Special emphasis was placed on the importance of impartiality of reports, quality control and review process, the use of statistics and visualization of data in presenting information to MPs and parliamentary committees. The workshop was attended by 22 staff members from various departments from the ARP, including staff from the ARP’s newly established Center for Research.
