Developing new mechanisms to promote interaction with the youth and enable them to pursue dialogue about public policies
Beginning of October 2018 – End of August 2020

Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs
Commitment description
In order to further activate youth participation in public affairs, and given the existence of several issues that threaten this category, such as illegal immigration, terrorism, addiction and other social deviances and threats, this commitment aims to create frameworks for dialogue. These frameworks aim to enable young people to express their opinions, concerns, and ideas freely and transparently as well as to influence decision-makers to carry out reforms intended to solve these problems. Therefore, the purpose is to complete the commitment drafted in the 2nd OGP action plan by implementing the following actions :
- Co-creation (Government/CSO) of local councils for youth which must include representatives of civil society and public authorities with a significant presence for the young people;
Developing an e-platform allowing youth to provide feedback on the delivery of selected public services and that requires the responsible public structures to respond and address the issues raised.
- Limited frameworks provided for dialogue and listening to youth concerns;
- Reluctance of young people to participate in public affairs and decline of trust in State institutions, especially in terms of ability to respond to youth aspirations and to take into consideration their proposals and ideas within the framework of addressing issues of concern to youth.
Identification of commitment objectives/expected results
• This commitment will enable the establishment of frameworks to include young people across the regions of Tunisia and allow them to express their opinions, concerns and submit their vision on issues that concern them, as well as providing guarantees to take into account their proposals and ideas in decision-making processes and the drafting of public policies.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
- Promoting youth capacities to monitor public affairs and contribute to change and to positively influence decision makers in order to harmonize their decisions with youth needs;
- Establishing a relationship based on trust and responsibility between young people and authorities, as well as transforming anger that can negatively affect the youth to a positive energy that could be employed to achieve useful projects that benefit these young people and their regions.
Relevance with OGP values
Participation: these mechanisms including the local councils and e-plat- form for youth participation will enable youths to present new ideas and proposals about several topics and issues that may concern them or their regions;
Accountability: Monitor concerned authorities, namely at the local level and hold them accountable regarding the drafting and implementation of public policies.Source of funding/
