Tunisia Local Engagement in the Political Process Project
DI expanded upon its successful support from 2013 to 2015 for Tunisia’s democratic transition by initiating a new long-term project in 2016 to foster greater civic engagement among the Tunisian electorate. Supported by the U.S. Department of State, DI worked with our long-time Tunisian partners Mourakiboun, an election observation network, and Innova Tunisia/WebRadar, a digital media monitoring firm, to implement a data-driven voter education campaign to prepare for the upcoming elections. Our team used data to map the Tunisian electorate and conduct targeted voter education activities using radio, mobile, and online media as well as grassroots-level initiatives. By conducting evidence-based, results-oriented, and tailored civic education activities and leveraging data to ensure the inclusion of women, youth, and marginalized populations, DI supported local engagement in Tunisia’s political process.
