After the 2011 revolution, Tunisia embarked on a comprehensive process of reforming the security sector, in partnership with the United Nations Program for Development (UNDP).

This approach reflects the state’s desire to restore confidence between internal security forces and citizens and to establish the rule of law.

In this context, the Ministry of the Interior has implemented a “Tunisian police model of proximity “. This constitutes one of the flagship reforms already initiated in the field and is based on openness, transparency and partnership with civil society.

In order to promote this new police approach and strengthen the involvement of the civil society in its implementation, UNDP is launching a call for proposals aimed at civil society actors to support associative initiatives aimed at:
