Capacity-building for Police and National Guard Officers in Tunisia

The IBCR is involved this year in Tunisia, through a project aimed at strengthening the skills of police and national guard officers in the field of children’s rights

Funded by UNICEF and implemented by the IBCR, this project aims to train about 100 members of the Judicial Police and the National Guard on the rights of children in conflict with the law over a period of 8 months. Through these trainings, the aim is to provide expertise to strengthen the actions and practices of the security forces, who intervene as close as possible to children, particularly in conflict with the law. They must be trained to accompany these children and protect them in the best possible way while respecting their rights and needs.

The project will be carried out in several phases, beginning with an assessment of the situation in the country through data collection carried out from August onwards by our expert in child justice who will visit the field.

Training courses designed specifically for the target audience, with the participation of a local lawyer and psychosocial expert and adapted to the Tunisian context, will then be created and delivered to the targeted trades.

The Office will work closely with the UNICEF Tunisian office, which will be a key local partner in ensuring the sustainability of the project’s activities.
