TUNIS, Nov. 23, 2010 (TAP) - An Arab training session for experts in delinquency started on Tuesday in Tunis. The event is organised by the Ministry of Social Affairs, Solidarity and Tunisians Abroad, in association with the Secretariat General of the Arab League.

The session, placed under the theme: "methods and mechanisms for taking care of young delinquents," runs till November 25, with the participation of representatives of Arab League member States and experts in the areas of psychology, education, social science and medicine from several Arab countries (Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Syria, Jordan, Sudan, Djibouti and United Arab Emirates.).

It aims to build up capacity of Arab researchers and specialists in social affairs by helping them exchange experiences, make use of the latest pedagogical and scientific methods and develop their experiences by relying on data drawn from the reality of delinquents in Arab countries.

Secretary of State in charge of Social Promotion, Mrs. Najah Belkhiria Karoui, said the meeting provides the opportunity for an in-depth thinking on approaches to combat delinquency, promote efficient methods and work out adequate plans and programmes, while taking due interest in prevention and integration.

Mr. Tarek Nabolsi, Officer at the Development Department stemming from the Technical Secretariat of the Arab Social Affairs Ministers' Council, commended Tunisia's ground- breaking role in boosting Arab social and development action and the special attention it grants to all social categories.

He reminded, in this regard, of the visits in 2008 to Tunisia made by the Technical Secretariat of the Arab Social Affairs Ministers' Council. These visits, he stressed, had made it possible to familiarise with the successful Tunisian experience in the area of social affairs.
