The Carter Center in Tunisia

The Carter Center established a field office in Tunis in July 2011 to observe the first democratic elections following the Arab Spring, monitor the constitution-drafting process and the establishment of the electoral framework, and promote the inclusion of international standards for elections, democracy, and human rights in the new constitution. In 2012-13, the Center conducted training for civil society partners engaged in election observation, and in 2014 it observed the legislative and presidential elections, providing Tunisian authorities, electoral stakeholders, and international actors with recommendations to improve election administration and the legal framework.

Since then the Center has continued to support progress in Tunisia’s legislative framework by monitoring the work of the parliament, holding meetings with key decision-makers to engage and advise on issues, and publishing public statements with recommendations on key legislative issues. The Center has also used its convening authority to organize regular meetings with the civil society organizations in support of joint advocacy campaigns on developing legislative issues. The Center regularly provides technical assistance on election standards and supports Tunisian CSO partners in identifying areas of agreement and forming joint recommendations regarding key legislation governing elections and democratic governance in Tunisia.
