This sub-project aims to strengthen access to justice for vulnerable people in Tunisia through a participatory and human rights-based approach. Association NESS pour la Prévention Combinée (NESS) is delivering training to 25 civil society organizations (CSOs) to enhance their knowledge of key human rights principles, constitutional rights, related advocacy and available support services. NESS is also supporting the 25 CSOs in developing an advocacy strategy to deal with human rights violations by delivering a training session on data collection and analysis of the constitutionality of several articles of the Penal Code. To sensitize stakeholders on the human rights violations against vulnerable groups, NESS is developing two (2) sensitization videos and holding ten (10) awareness-raising sessions with the invisible theatre technique for 50 magistrates from the Governorates of Tunis, Gafsa and Kef; ten (10) additional sensitization sessions involve the participation of students of the Legal Science faculties in the three (3) Governorates. Finally, NESS is providing support to marginalized groups, including women/victims of gender-based violence referred by the National Observatory for the Fight against Violence against Women, by facilitating access to available legal aid services provided by the Ministry of Justice, Avocats sans Frontières, and the Association de Défense des Libertés Individuelles.
