Gender-based violence (GBV) has been a priority concern in Tunisia. In Tunisia, according to the National Survey on Violence against Women, gender-based violence concerns 47.6% of women aged 18-64.

Although Tunisia has policy and institutional mechanisms that address GBV, such as the National Strategy for Combating Violence Against Women (2008) and a State Secretariat for Women and the Family (MFFE), the number of women victims of violence remains high, the capacity of various actors to address GBV remains limited and the coordination between the various protection and support services remains ineffective. The centers of care, which offer listening, guidance, accompaniment and accommodation services for women survivors of violence are few, newly established and are unable to fully meet the needs of survivors.

Women’s shelters and similar services are particularly important in ensuring support for GBV survivors. Currently, the is a need to develop protocol or guidelines to direct shelter operations. In partnership with the Ministry of Women, Family and Childhood, IDLO is implementing a project that supports the development of these shelter guidelines.

Over the years there are several initiatives around women’s shelter, centers of care and similar services. Among them, the protocols for intersectoral work, signed on November 2016, aims at setting up working mechanisms between the different sectors involved with women victims of violence, namely the health sector, Security, social affairs, women and justice. IDLO’s project seek to build upon and complement these initiatives.

The purpose of this consultancy is the development of gender-responsive protocol/guidelines for women’s shelters in Tunisia, as per the four components listed below.

Under the direct supervision of the IDLO’s Country Representative for Tunisia, in coordination with IDLO’s Senior Gender Adviser and IDLO’s Research Team, the National Consultant will perform the following duties and produce the following deliverables:
