At the end of October 2021, we provided our third intensive training on early warning systems & indicators, part of this year programme on “management of social conflict” of the Ecole Supérieure des Forces de Sécurité Intérieure (ESFSI) of the Home Ministry of Tunisia.

The programme is supported by the European project “Counter-terrorism in Tunisia” via CIVIPOL. The first session took place in August 2020 and the second in March 2021.

It was a 40 hours long intensive training including lectures, tutorials for software and practice around real life issues. It was a fantastic week, as previously. Trainees were very committed, attentive and succeeded in learning new concepts and methodology very quickly and in applying them concretely to their everyday work.

Again, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, we did everything through Zoom, but we are now all used to this framework. It worked perfectly well, thanks to the ESFSI, the great team operating for CIVIPOL in Tunis, and of course, to fantastic trainees!
