On the 21st and 22nd of February, the International Institute for Nonviolent Action (NOVACT), the Tunisian League for Human Rights (LTDH) and the Maghreb Coordination of Human Rights Organizations (CMODH) organize a mission in Tunisia attended by Mr. Wim Kok, former Prime Minister of the Netherlands and member of the Madrid Club.

The goal of this mission is to make known the situation of human rights in Tunisia and the main demands of the Tunisian associative network. In addition, this will allow us to present the conclusions of the international conference “Towards a New Paradigm: Preventing Violent Extremism” (Barcelona, 28, 29 and 30 January 2017) as reflected in the Plan of Action ratified by more than 170 Euro-Mediterranean civil society organizations.

This mission also aims to support the implementation of this “Plan of Action” in Tunisia, ensuring the strengthening of alliance relations between all the Tunisian organizations who were present at the Barcelona conference.

The main acts of the mission are:
