The Tunisia Country Office was established in April 2011 at the request of the Tunisian Government, through a Memorandum of Understanding. The Office enjoys a full mandate to protect and promote human rights. It focuses its activities on a broad number of human rights issues, including strengthening accountability and the rule of law. It supports national stakeholders' efforts towards the establishment of an effective national human rights protection system, through the monitoring of the situation, the provision of expert advice, the delivery of capacity-building programs and the facilitation of dialogue.
