  1. Description of NDI

NDI is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-partisan organization that works to strengthen and develop democracy around the world. Using a global network of volunteer experts, NDI provides technical support to parliaments, political parties, elected officials and civil society organizations working to establish democratic values and institutions in their countries. For more information on the organization, visit our website: www.ndi.org.

 

  1. Context

Through its USAID-funded Political Transitions Project (PTP), NDI is conducting a series of activities designed to combat the pernicious effects of disinformation in Tunisia. To accomplish this objective, NDI and its partners will support the efforts of civil society organizations, political parties, media outlets, and citizens to produce a healthier information space. NDI is implementing this project in close collaboration with its partners in the Consortium for Electoral and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS), most notably the Internews organization.

 

NDI launched its countering disinformation initiative in 2021 with an assessment of the impact of disinformation on Tunisian politics and society, and in inventory of the current efforts to combat the negative effects of disinformation. Based on the results of this assessment, NDI has planned a multi-faceted program that seeks to achieve four objectives:

 

  • Objective 1: Build resilience to disinformation among Tunisian citizens, civil society, and political parties.

  • Objective 2: Assist the media and public authorities to produce timely and accurate information.

  • Objective 3: Support advocacy to online platforms and governments to create a conducive environment for efforts to fight disinformation.

  • Objective 4: Promote greater coordination and networking among Tunisian and international NGOs fighting disinformation.

 

Select noteworthy activities include:

 

  • NDI and Internews will partner to conduct a joint multi-faceted, multi-channel awareness-raising campaign on media and information literacy (MIL) that would include both online and offline components, tailored to different demographics. As one part of this initiative, NDI will provide a subgrant to a Tunisian civil society organization to design and implement an initiative to raise awareness among citizens of the threat and negative effects of disinformation.

  • NDI will draw on its membership in the D4D Coalition and ties with such platforms to support the advocacy efforts of Tunisian organizations seeking to combat disinformation.

  • NDI will assist civil society organizations and political parties working under other components of the PTP program to better understand the threat of disinformation, tools to identify and detect disinformation, and strategies to build resilience.

  • In light of the growing number of Tunisian and international NGOs working to combat disinformation, NDI and Internews will lead information exchanges and improve coordination among these groups. NDI will organize an online gathering in fall 2021, with the intent to then set up periodic exchanges throughout the project.
