Presentation

After two successful democratic votes (constituent assembly elections in 2011 and presidential elections in 2014), Tunisia adopted a new constitution in January 2014. Municipal elections, scheduled for March 2018, will mark a turning point in the nation's political, economic and institutional decentralisation policy. Legislative elections, when citizens will have to address challenges from a local angle, are set to take place in December 2019.

For the past six years, CFI has been mentoring the Tunisian media through a number of projects, particularly the Tunisian public TV station ETT, the Tunis Afrique Presse (TAP) agency, and also structures involved in the development of citizen journalism, such as Nawaat, Al Khatt and Tunisie Bondy Blog.

The Hiwar Tounsi project, devised and implemented jointly with the Tunisian Barr Al Aman Association, is helping to expand coverage of the 2018 and 2019 elections in Tunisia, and to enhance the volume and quality of information on local political life in the media. Indeed, despite the fact that the media offering generally has improved in the region since the Revolution, the local population has less access to information concerning them directly.

The actions that have been implemented will provide journalists with a guide to understanding the challenges thrown up by the elections and will promote citizens' engagement through dialogue and exchanges with elected representatives.
