Search in Tunisia – Lybia

Search’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. Search works in Tunisia to help members of Tunisian society to address conflicts and differences constructively through cooperation and dialogue. Search-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, Search-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. In Libya, we are working with Libyan activists and leaders, both inside Libya and in neighboring Tunisia, to equip them with the skills to build a future of inclusion and democracy for their country. We implement, among others, a project to build conflict analysis and mediation capacities of local stakeholders in five Libyan communities and help set up early warning systems for outbreaks of violence.
