Projects in Africa


In November 2015, Institut supérieur de l'information et de la communication (ISIC) and Institut belge des Hautes Etudes des Communications sociales (IHECS) - Haute Ecole Galilée signed a cooperation agreement as part of the bilateral agreements concluded between the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (WBI) and the Kingdom of Morocco.

This agreement was renewed in 2017 for 5 years.  Both institutions develop joint activities and partnerships in paedagogical planning and research.  The project also allows for visits by teachers and students and the exchange of practices, as well as research in the field of sociology concerning journalism and the media.

​Burkina Faso:

IHECS collaborates with Burkina Faso. In 2018, with the support of the Joint Standing Committee (Direct Bilateral Cooperation Project), a project was launched with the title "Contribute to democratisation.  Citizen media and journalism training". (2018-2022)

Through teacher mobility, the emphasis is on training independent journalists. On top of that, we are aiming for the local production of an online citizen media and the involvement of young people from Burkina Faso.
Partner: IPERMIC (Institut panafricain d’étude et de recherche sur les médias, l’information et la communication de l’Université de Ouagadougou I Pr Joseph Ki-Zerbo).
