The Carter Center in Tunisia:

Following its international election observation of 2011, The Carter Center retained a presence in Tunisia to monitor the constitutional drafting process and observe the legislative and presidential elections of 2014. The Center remains in Tunisia to monitor the process of harmonizing existing domestic legislation and new legislation with the ideals of the 2014 constitution. 

Since then, the Center has continued to work with Civil Society Organizations on capacity-building issues. In 2018, the Center held focus groups in partnership with CSOs. The Center also strengthened their capacity and shared best practices with CSOs preparing to observe the municipal elections. The Center fielded an international observation mission to observe Tunisia’s early presidential and legislative elections in 2019 and the referendum and legislative elections in 2022/2023. Currently, the Center is conducting projects on fact-checking and women’s participation in civic life.
