LGBTQI associations in Tunisia - Emergence of a new human activism

27.04.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This study aims to shed light on the issue of LGBTQI ++ activism in Tunisia through the analysis of the situation of associations that act for the defense and the promotion of the rights of LGBTQI ++ people.

It is a diagnosis of the real situation of the associative engagement in the matter: to measure it, to grasp its specificities and its obstacles, to deconstruct and analyze them to ensure a more sustained and durable activism in the defense of the rights of LGBTQI ++ people. This implies conducting a qualitative analysis to reveal the characteristics of this associative dynamic in the movement of defense of human rights and to evaluate its durability and its societal and political impact.
