Bureau of NEA Assistance Coordination: Enhancing Public Accountability and Trust in Tunisia

Deadline: 14 June 2018

The Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs Office of Assistance Coordination (NEA/AC) is currently seeking applications for its program entitled “Enhancing Public Accountability and Trust in Tunisia”.

 Objectives

  • Political parties develop governance action plans based on newly-created platforms;
  • A mechanism is developed for political parties to hold elected officials (party members or counterparts with whom parties interact) accountable to their party’s platform;
  • Engagement and partnerships are deepened with civil society organizations to enable the public to assume the responsibility of holding their elected officials accountable to the promises they make; and,
  • Mutual trust is strengthened between and among parties, and with civil society, including media, and the public.

Project Design

  • Political Party Platforms: While many factors challenge political parties, developing responsive platforms and delivering on promises made during campaigns are likely to increase public support.
  • Accountability and Responsiveness: The public who votes for these parties has the responsibility and the right to hold their elected officials accountable to the promises they make.
  • Mutual and Societal Trust:
    • The project will take steps to:
      • Enhance mutual trust between parties and politicians’ awareness of the value that parties add to a democratic society, by helping them develop and enhance a platform that establishes their identities as political parties.
      • Enhance societal trust in political parties by organizing joint projects between parties and civil society actors and increasing interfaces between politicians and citizens.
