Position title: National Public Law Expert

Type of contract: Short-term consultant

Application Deadline: September 15, 2019

Contract start date: October 1st, 2019

Contract duration: 8 months

Place of work: Tunis

I- Background 

The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) is an international intergovernmental organization, based in Stockholm, with more than 20 years of experience in supporting sustainable democracy and sharing comparative knowledge on different aspects of democracy.

Since 2011, International IDEA has been interested in the constitutional process in Tunisia and more particularly in the guarantee of rights and freedoms in the new 2014 Constitution.

Article 49 of the Tunisian Constitution sets out the conditions and criteria for limiting the exercise of rights and freedoms in a democratic State, so that such restrictions are not abusive and disproportionate. Legal texts relating to the exercise of individual freedoms promulgated before the adoption of the 2014 Constitution must now comply with the aforementioned article 49.

Research in this regard is necessary in order to identify existing legal texts related to individual freedoms that are not in conformity with the provisions of the said article. This research will contribute to raising awareness among professionals, parliamentarians, civil society and the public of the impact and implications of article 49 on the recognition and guarantee of individual freedoms.

The services of a national expert specialized in public law are necessary in order to draw up a list of laws in force relating to individual freedoms and to analyze them in the light of article 49 of the Constitution.
