In light of the July 25th social movements and activation of the constitution’s Article 80 by the president of the Tunisian Republic, the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) is inviting state officials, CSOs, anti-corruption activists, and experts to participate in a remote workshop to discuss “Tunisia’s Post July 25th Exceptional Circumstances and the Status of Promoting Accountability for Dictatorship-related Corruption”.  

The workshop will taking place on ZOOM and be livestreamed on Facebook, on September 29th, 2021, from 02 to 05 PM, Tunisia Time (9am-12pm ET). It will aim to open space for a discussion with the invitees on the current status of the TDC identified corruption cases pending before the SCCs and how state officials and institutions can join efforts with CSOs and activists to consolidate anti-corruption and asset recovery work to move through the “exceptional circumstances” and address dictatorship-related corruption and marginalization, as considered to be the root causes that led to the activation of the constitution’s Article 80. The workshop will try to draw on the comparative expertise of both international and local experts, including INLUCC’s and former 2011 Investigative Commission on Corruption and Embezzlement members, the SLA Officials, CSOs’ activists from the Tunisian Platform for Change and investigative journalists from Al Qatiba

The event will be livestreamed simultaneously on ICTJ's English and Arabic Facebook pages.
