Tunisia

ICNL’s resources and information on Tunisia.

Overview

ICNL works with local partner Kawakibi for Democracy Transitions to promote an enabling environment for CSOs in Tunisia, including by opposing the amendment of Decree 88 on Associations, one of the most progressive CSO laws in the MENA region. We also provide expertise to government stakeholders around compliance with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Recommendation 8 with respect to preventing terrorism financing among CSOs.

The study illustrates how AML/CTF laws in Tunisia conform with FATF standards and aims to raise awareness in the sector to constructively engage with relevant agencies in law reform to better comply with international protections of freedom of association.
