ABOUT ASSOCIATION TUNISIE MEDIA
Association Tunisie Media (ATM), also known as the Tunisia Media Partnership, is a collaborative project with Tunisian media that provides informative and engaging programming for the Tunisian people at a crucial moment in their country’s democratic transition.
In October 2011, AAM opened the ATM office in the capital city of Tunis. ATM partners with leading Tunisian radio and television stations to produce a series of nine town halls on key areas of Tunisia’s democratic transition including governance, political participation, freedom of expression, and the economy.
The innovative format of these interactive town hall programs provides a forum to incorporate a wide range of Tunisian voices and concerns, especially to help give voice to the country’s rural interior by connecting them with coastal regions for direct discussion on Tunisia’s future.
The initiative also builds the capacity of independent Tunisian media and provides Tunisian journalists with a unique opportunity to increase their reporting skills and professionalism through hands-on production.
This project is supported by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, Office of the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). More information about MEPI can be found at: www.mepi.state.gov.
