Study on the place of gender in the security sector reform in Tunisia

In partnership with UN Women Maghreb,  and as part of its “Women, Peace and Security program”, Aswat Nissa, who advocates for gender mainstreaming in public policies, organized a conference on 4 October in Tunis to present the results of a study entitled "Women and Global Security: Towards Gender Responsive Reform of the Security Sector in Tunisia".

The study is based on a field survey conducted by women politicians around citizens’ perceptions of security in Tunisia and women’s participation in the security sector.

A policy brief summarizing the results of this study was presented during the conference, along with recommendations for legislators and the security administration. The purpose of this event was to launch a network of women ambassadors for the Women, Peace and Security Agenda.

At the end of this conference on Gender in Security Sector Reform, which brought together 12 MPs from different parliamentary groups, Aswat Nissa succeeded in initiating a group of MPs ambassadors for the Women, Peace and Security Agenda. This group of women pledged to work together for the institutionalization of gender responsive budgeting in the Organic Budget Law (LOB), and also to advocate for horizontal and vertical parity in legislative elections.
