Search works in Tunisia to help members of Tunisian society to address conflicts and differences constructively through cooperation and dialogue.

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. This will ultimately contribute to a higher youth turnout in the 2019 elections in Tunisia.
