Search in Tunisia
Search for Common Ground’s (Search) 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. More information about our Tunisia program can be found

democratic process and sustain Tunisia’s democratic transition. Based on this belief, Search and its
production partner Ma’an network will produce a reality television program to increase young women and
men’s interest in constructively participating in politics, peacefully engaging with their national and local
governments, and improving mutual understanding and trust, ultimately contributing to higher youth
turnout in the 2019 elections in Tunisia.
