L'expérience EMI en direction des jeunes Tunisiens comme vecteur de lutte contre la désinformation (IREX Europe and ATMA)

Description: Nous vivons dans un monde qui se transforme rapidement et où l’information et la
communication sont impactées par le numérique. En Tunisie comme ailleurs cela a ses
avantages et ses inconvénients, il a créé un certain désordre d’informations. Chaque individu
peut être à la fois consommateur et producteur de l’information d’où l’existence de vrai, faux,
intox, désinformation… Il nous semble important de proposer à chacun et à chacune quelques
grands repères pour leur permettre de pleinement jouer son rôle de citoyen.

Durant cette session nous allons parler de la contribution de l’Education aux Médias et
à l’Information (EMI) en faveur de la lutte contre la désinformation. L’EMI développe les
compétences nécessaires chez les jeunes tunisiens pour leur permettre de comprendre et
d’évaluer de manière critique l’information rapportée par tous les médias à travers une
approche pédagogique bien définie.

Speaker: Amel Abaeidi

Creating an exotic other: UNgodly, UNTunisian and UNnatural (Mawjoudin)

Description: Prior to 2011, speech has been suppressed and freedom oppressed. Access to information was deemed unacceptable and even a threat to national security. Thanks to the uprising of 2011, a.surge of speech have been set free. Access to information is now a right and social media a tool to both receive and spread information. However, the line between hate speech and freedom of speech remains undefined socially, politically and legally.

In this session, I will try to analyze quantitatively and qualitatively the hate speech inflicted upon queer individuals on social media. The three axes drawn upon this bigotry are religion, nationalism(nativism) and so-thought anthropology.

Speaker: Dhouha Mabrouk

What to really expect from the 5G mobile network standard? (epicenter.works)

Speaker: Thomas Lohninger
