National Democratic Institution
This week, NDI launched its new Arabic-language e-learning and training platformTaalamSharek.org, or“learn-engage” in English. Redesigned with support from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), this platform, which is also designed to be used on mobile phones, represents a new era in online engagement with and among democracy advocates in the Middle East and North Africa. The platform allows citizens to build their civic and political skills on topics such as campaign planning, elections, citizen participation, governance, and political party development.
Facebook and the PeaceTech Lab were invited as panelists to discuss the adoption of technology by civil society leaders in MENA.
