As part of UNHCR Policy on selection and retention of partners for project partnership agreements, UNHCR Tunisia is publishing a Call for expression of interest to select partners for the following project:
Project title and Identification: Capacity building and sensitization of civil society and the Tunisian authorities on the rights of refugees and asylum seekers in Tunisia in order to facilitate the adoption of the Asylum Law
Project Location: Tunis – Sfax – Médenine – Sousse
Brief Background of the Project: The objective of this project is to promote a favorable protection environment for refugees and asylum seekers in Tunisia by strengthening the knowledge and capacities of civil society, raising awareness among authorities and policy makers in order to facilitate the adoption of the Asylum Law.
Goal: Capacity building
Objective: Public attitude towards persons of concern improved: UNHCR needs to improve public attitude towards persons of concern in order to ensure their proper integration. Targeted events for journalist and civil society will raise awareness on refugee issues and facilitate the advocacy for the adoption of the Asylum Law by the Tunisian authorities.
Objective: Law and policy developed or strengthened: A draft legislation on asylum is under discussion since 2011. UNHCR has supported and monitored closely this process since then. Draft texts have been shared with UNHCR in 2014 and comments have been submitted by UNHCR in the same year. Further activities have been implemented in 2015 and 2016 in order to refine the draft texts and prepare submission and discussion by the legislative branch. UNHCR will build on what was achieved during previous years and implement capacity building activities targeting a number of Tunisian officials from the ministries of Interior, Foreign Affairs, Social Affairs and Justice and lawyers in order to increase and reinforce their knowledge of refugee law and international protection principles in the perspective of the adoption of the asylum law.
