ENGAGEMENT IN Tunisia

 

Oxfam in Tunisia

Oxfam has been present in the Maghreb region for decades, working closely with national civil society organizations. Following the uprising, Oxfam established an office in Tunisia in early 2012 to support the movement of civil society in the region and in Tunisia, including women’s rights. Oxfam wants to encourage the participation of the younger generation in public processes and decision making by supporting youth associations movements emerging across the country. Oxfam puts women’s rights at the core of what we do and is deeply convinced that gender equality is essential to achieve democratic transition.
By promoting democracy and active citizenship, Oxfam’s goal is to promote social and economic rights through capacity building and support for the new democratic institutions. Oxfam also considers it essential to ensure free and secure access to information in order to promote active citizenship.

Context of the mission

Funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark under the Danish-Arab Partnership Programme (DAPP), Oxfam has a contract with DAPP to implement the “Youth Participation and Employment” (YPE) engagement under the thematic programme on Economic Opportunities – Youth Participation and Employment in Tunisia (2017-2022). The intermediate objective of the YPE engagement is to contribute to enhanced Inclusive youth participation and employment opportunities, through assuring an economically empowered and well developed inclusive youth sector.
The YPE engagement in Tunisia is targeting young women and men aged 18-35. Currently implemented in close partnership with local civil society organizations and other key actors in Tunisia, the YPE engagement in Tunisia aims to achieve the following outcomes:
