What we do

DRC has been working in Tunisia since 2011 as part of a coordinated Libya-Tunisia program responding to regional instability following the Arab Spring revolutions. DRC has a coordination office in Tunis for its operations in Algeria, Libya and Tunisia.

Since 2014, DRC has been implementing a series of armed violence reduction projects aimed at enhancing community security and resilience in key border towns in Tunisia.

Since 2021, DRC has diversified its programming to focus on Economic Recovery support for Tunisian Youth including through a multi-year, Danish MFA funded, Danish Arab Partnership Program.
