Search in Tunisia SFCG’s mission in Tunisia is to promote the culture of dialogue and diversity through the involvement of all parts of society while building their capacities. SFCG works in Tunisia to help members of Tunisian society to address conflicts and differences constructively through cooperation and dialogue. SFCG Tunisia works across multiple channels, mainly with youth, CSOs, media actors, security forces, and local authorities to build the capacity of individuals and institutions to address challenges including differences and acting on common points. Through this approach and partnerships, SFCG-Tunisia has four main strategic objectives: (i) Promoting Peace Education; (ii) Fostering non-violent social dialogue; (iii) Enhancing participatory and inclusive governance, and (vi) Transforming Violent Extremism in Tunisia. 


2.1. Background and Context 

As identified by the UK Government’s Joint Analysis of Conflict and Stability, Tunisia is displaying indications of a growing risk of instability, which if left unaddressed, threatens to derail its post-revolution transition towards democracy. Youth marginalization based on regional inequalities, one of the main drivers behind the 2011 revolution in Tunisia, has become more entrenched in recent years, leading to growing frustration and despair reflected in youth protest movements across the country. The recently initiated decentralization process provides an

avenue for young people’s increased involvement in decision-making at the local level if youth are indeed listened to and empowered to equally participate. 

Yet, effective youth engagement as part of the decentralization process faces several challenges. First, local authorities have limited capacities and tools for participatory approaches to engage citizens, particularly young people, in local decision-making. Second, civil society organizations (CSOs) also face difficulties in sustaining public engagement with young people on an ongoing basis and show a limited capacity to empower youth to effectively engage with their local governance. These barriers to participation and accountability must be met at the local level through increased youth democratic participation and better engagement between youth and local authorities. Building on existing platforms and increasing the opportunities for Tunisians to engage in local governance will be equally important as it will continue to provide a space for youth to build their capacity. Third, marginalized and disengaged young people report few avenues for leisure at the local level, a finding that is particularly worrying from preventing violent extremism (PVE) lens, but which also demonstrates the further regional marginalization and disengagement of Tunisian youth. 

2.2. Impact and Change 

Search proposes building upon our extensive youth engagement work across all regions of Tunisia to address the lack of positive youth engagement activities at the local level, especially for marginalized youth. Promoting constructive youth engagement with local authorities through activities such as youth-to-youth talks and creative workshops will allow youth to express their concerns around marginalization and inequality issues at the local level, and suggest concrete ideas to address them, invigorating and consolidating their trust in and collaboration with local authorities. By engaging both youth and local authorities through a bottom-up approach that creates space for dialogues, this project will strengthen a more sustainable and constructive relationship between these two groups. 

2.3. Goal, Objectives, and Activities 

The overall goal of the project is to foster a culture of open dialogue around key issues of marginalization and inequality prevalent in local communities that will serve as a means to build trust and collaboration between youth and local authorities. 

As tools to achieve the Theory of Change, the specific objectives of the project are defined as follows: 

  • Objective 1: Provide youth with a safe space and opportunities to convene effective discussions around key marginalization and inequality issues in their communities to express their voices in creative and peaceful (non-violent) ways in front of local authorities; and 
  • Objective 2: Contribute to a shift that values constructive collaboration, trust, and engagement between youth and local officials through dialogues and discussions.
