UNESCO field offices: Rabat

Three, 3-day training workshops, organized by the Mauritania Syndicate of Independent Journalists (SJIM) to strengthen editorial skills among independent journalists. The list of participants in each workshop, as well as the list of speakers and the detailed program, will be submitted to the UNESCO office in Rabat 15 days before the date of each activity.

The immediate objective is to support 25 illiterate women from the South-East region of Tunisia in their contribution to local development by heightening the visibility of their projects.

At a time when Algerian universities are training thousands of students in Information and Communication Sciences, the media sector has flourished in terms of job opportunities. However, print-media companies, both private and public, have been reluctant in opening their doors to university graduates. Graduates from universities' Information Sciences departments are rarely hired by the many French-language newspapers, which are increasing turning to graduates with diplomas in natural sciences and foreign languages. It is for this reason that the Ecole nationale supérieure de journalisme et...

The Ecole Nationale d’Administration was established in 1966 to train senior-level Mauritanian government officials, and in this capacity it was entrusted with the task of setting up Journalism Institute. Since 2011, the Institute has been offering a programme of initial training in journalism, as well as a programme of ongoing training aimed at practising journalists. Since then, it has been operating under the name, Ecole nationale d’administration, du journalisme et de la magistrature (ENAJM) (National School of Administration, Journalism and Magistracy). This project provides for a...

Since the birth of the social movement on 20 February 2011, which took to the streets of Morocco to demand policy reforms leading towards a genuine democratic regime respectful of human rights, numerous protesters have been attacked by law enforcement officials. Likewise, a large number of media professionals, both Moroccan and foreign, have suffered and continue to suffer from the violent reactions of a regime which has never ceased to practise a policy of control on information. These reactions range from physical aggression to the withdrawal of journalists' press cards, as well as...

The post-revolution media sector in Tunisia has entered an uncertain stage where there is a clear lack of regulation and confusion about media-ethics standards. The majority of media professionals does not differ between criticism and defamation, and some media managers incite their employees to go beyond ethical limits in order to increase their audiences and profits. Therefore, there is a general incorrect use of the right of freedom of expression and information by Tunisian media at large. Unfortunately, there isn’t any Press Council to ensure self-regulation among media professionals....

La presse écrite indépendante en Algérie est née en 1990, dans des conditions difficiles. Plus de 100 journalistes ont été assassinés au début des années ‘90 et d’autres ont été emprisonnés. Aujourd’hui, il existe plus de 80 quotidiens dans les deux langues, arabe et français. Plusieurs quotidiens réalisent des tirages très importants, dépassant les 100 000 exemplaires/jour. 90% des journalistes travaillant dans ces médias ont moins de 45 ans et ne bénéficient pas de cycles de formation continue ou de perfectionnement.

Bien que l’on puisse considérer la presse algérienne comme...

Au Maroc, la réforme de l’audiovisuel engagée en 2004, n’a pas débouché sur le pluralisme médiatique escompté : le paysage audiovisuel demeure à ce jour restreint aux médias du pôle public et aux médias privés à caractère commercial. La suppression du monopôle de l'Etat en matière de radiodiffusion et la création de la Haute Autorité de la Communication Audiovisuelle (HACA), n’ont pas abouti à un cadre juridique garantissant la liberté d’expression et le pluralisme et la loi en vigueur ne prévoit pas l’attribution de licence pour opérer des médias audiovisuels à caractère associatif ou...

Malgré l’existence d’un environnement médiatique plutôt favorable depuis les élections en 2009 qui ont marqué le retour de la Mauritanie à un ordre constitutionnel, l’absence de structure locale de formation de journalistes, l’accès difficile et le nombre réduit de formations à l’étranger ont constitué jusqu’ici des obstacles à une formation adaptée aux besoins des professionnels des médias. L’Ecole Nationale d’Administration, créée en 1966 pour former les hauts fonctionnaires de l’Etat mauritanien, s’est ainsi vu confier la mission de créer un institut de journalisme. Depuis fin mars 2010...
