ILAC Welcomes the Tunisian Bar Association as our Newest Member

ILAC is delighted to welcome the Tunisian Bar Association (Ordre national des avocats de Tunisie, ONAT) as our newest organizational member!

The Tunisian Bar Association is a member  of the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet, that won the  Nobel Peace Prize in 2015.  As a member of the Quartet, the Tunisian Bar played a prominent role in bringing about true reform in Tunisia that led to presidential and parliamentary elections as well as the ratification of a new constitution in 2014.

It was also the Tunisian Bar Association that first invited ILAC into Tunisia to assess how to rebuild the justice system just a few short weeks after Ben Ali’s departure.

Since 2012 ILAC has been engaged in Tunisia with a number of training and technical assistance programmes that aim to help rebuild the justice system so it is based on the rule of law and protects human rights.

Welcome ONAT!
