Search for Common Ground in Tunisia

Search for Common Ground-Tunisia aims to help members of Tunisian society approach conflicts and differences in a constructive manner, through cooperation and dialogue. SFCG-Tunisia is working through multiple channels to build the capacity of civil society, the media and public institutions to approach challenges through cooperation and dialogue. Search for Common Ground-Tunisia currently includes a team of 20+ staff.

Women’s Dialogue Project

SFCG’s Women’s Dialogue Project (funded by the British embassy in Tunis) aims to bring together Tunisians across ideological lines and to reduce polarization and divisions among Tunisian women.
Since 2013, 14 women’s CSOs from across the liberal-conservative spectrum have been engaged in a dialogue that has improved personal relationships across deep political divides, increased mutual understanding of and respect for one another’s positions, differences and beliefs and led to a recognition of the existence of common ground between them. The dialogue successfully decreased tensions and addressed stereotypes between leaders of varied groups.
Search for Common Ground-Tunisia is now committed to further supporting this women’s CSOs platform to expand cooperation on women’s issues across the political spectrum by engaging with their base and respective constituencies as well as promoting women’s advocacy goals.
