This sub-project aims to strengthen access to justice for vulnerable people in Tunisia through a participatory and human rights-based approach. In order to achieve this objective, the Association NESS pour la Prévention Combinée (NESS) will deliver a series of training sessions to 25 civil society organizations (CSOs) to enhance their knowledge on key human rights principles, constitutional rights, related advocacy and available support services. NESS will further support the 25 CSOs in the development of an advocacy strategy to deal with human rights violations by delivering a training session on data collection and analysis of the constitutionality of a number of articles of the Penal Code. In order to sensitize stakeholders on the human rights violations targeting vulnerable groups, NESS will develop two (2) sensitization videos and hold 10 awareness-raising sessions through the invisible theatre technique to 50 magistrates from the Governorates of Tunis, Gafsa and Kef; 10 additional sensitization sessions will involve the participation of students of the Legal Science faculties in the three (3) Governorates.  Finally, NESS will provide 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.
