UN Women has worked in Tunisia since 2009 and as a joint Conflict Cluster Office (CCO) for Tunisia/Libya since 2019. Despite the country’s current period of uncertainty in the midst of a fragile political transition, Tunisia has been known as a leader in the region on human rights and gender equality. UN Women’s support, focused on national priorities with government partners, civil society and partner UN agencies is centred around three main work areas:

  • Women’s Economic Empowerment, including Ending Economic Violence Against Women
  • Inclusive Governance and Women’s Political Participation, including Ending Violence Against Women in Politics
  • Women, Peace and Security

Innovations include its work with rural women and women with disabilities, integrating men and boys and strengthening data on gender equality with national partners. UN Women Tunisia established the UN Gender Thematic Group (GTG), which allows for close coordination across UN and international partners to synergize actions around women’s empowerment
