On Thursday December 13th, the French National Audiovisual National Institute (INA) and the Belgium High Audiovisual Council (CSA) announce their engagement with the HAICA, the regulatory body in charge of the Tunisian audiovisual sector, in order to define and implement new technical means to record and manage the audiovisual media.
The Independent High Authority for Audiovisual Communication (HAICA), the project beneficiary
Created in 2011, the HAICA is a Tunisian public authority responsible for ensuring the organization and regulation of the national audiovisual sector. With these missions and aims, the HAICA has a leading role for strengthening freedom of expression and media pluralism in Tunisia.
A European Twinning Programme
This project is part of a Twinning Programme funded by the European Union through its neighborhood policy. The objective is to bring together sister institutions coming from EU member states and a partner country, aiming at enabling technical help, exchanges of best practices, skills transfer and the establishment of sustainable institutional partnerships.
The Belgium CSA and INA joined their forces to meet the HAICA needs and requirements: strengthening its strategy, its organization and its technical competencies.
INA brings its know-how and experience in order to help the HAICA to implement its recording, cataloguing and archiving system. This support aims at enhancing HAICA monitoring and media studies activities.
INA, a leading international player in the cultural and audiovisual fields
INA is internationally recognized for its know-how in the fields of digitization, documentation and enhancement of audiovisual collections, and now shares this expertise with foreign companies and institutions. The Institute proposes consultancy and training offers in the audiovisual fields regarding technical, legal or managerial aspects. In addition, INA contributes to the European neighborhood policy: the Institute is a regular partner of European projects supporting the cultural and audiovisual sectors in Maghreb countries.
