Régions concernées par cette opportunité: Tunis


In 2012, International IDEA launched a project to establish the Arab Association of Constitutional Law (the “Association”), the first regional association of constitutional experts in West Asia and North Africa. The project had as its objective to allow for a new generation of experts from the region to participate in the reform processes and to introduce new ideas and concepts to the debate on constitutional reform. After two years of preparation, the Association was launched as a non-governmental organization in October 2014. According to its charter, which was approved in its third regional conference, the Association plans to contribute to democratization efforts in the Arab region by makings its comparative expertise available to reform efforts throughout the region, by providing objective technical analysis of the region’s constitutional frameworks and by promoting intra-regional learning. The Arab Association’s membership is modern, broad and independent. In a highly politicized region, the Association has successfully created one of the only opportunities for highly qualified leaders in constitutional law to engage with each other in a non-politicised environment to explore solutions to their problems.

In January 2016, International IDEA commenced a second phase of activities for the ACL. The second phase has a number of objectives including to:

  • Ensure that the Association is capable of sustaining itself and of participating in democratic reform throughout the Arab region;
  • Contribute to the debate on the region’s difficulties, in so far as they relate to constitutional issues, search for solutions, and serve as a reference and resource for future constitution-drafting processes;
  • Create a platform that will allow for a new generation of constitutional experts to become involved in the discourse on constitutional reform in the region;
  • Improve the quality of scholarship on constitutional law issues in the region.

In order to make all of this possible, the second phase will involve the establishment of a Secretariat, which will be led by a Secretary General supported by a Logistics and Finance Officer (the ‘Officer’).
