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.

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

  • Find effective solutions for the challenges the youth face in their communities.
