History

Since its independence on March 20, 1956 Tunisia has made considerable efforts for the advancement of women’s status, supporting their role in society and in various areas of life.

 The Personal Status Code promulgated on August 13, 1956 (after successive revisions and amendments) empowered by 1993 reforms, therefore, represented an adequate legislative basis, which put Tunisian women at the heart of human development strategy.  In fact, such code upgrades women from gender equality to the level of active partner to contribute to the viable development plans.

 Indeed, to implementthe state’ssocial projects aiming to boost women’s conditions and their rights, CERDIF was established to undertake the role of an institution highly specialized on women’s issues. So, CERDIF contributes to enlarge women’s participation in development activities and serves to implement the state’s policy in this area. Therefore, CERDIF becomes one of the scientific references specialized in Gender issues.

 Thanks to numerous activities, programs and studies, CERDIF reached an important position at the national and international levels, which made it a “Pole of Expertise” in issues related to women. Obviously, CREDIF’s activities and programs increased the attraction of governmental and non-governmental organizations specialized in women’s issues throughout the world.
