Stakeholders: Tunisia

The players

The legal tapestry and the civil space in the area of citizenship education, especially in the transitional process, highlights the multitude and the difference of the stakeholders, along with the diversity of their objectives and working methodologies, which makes it difficult to draw up an exhaustive list of all the players with an outline of the interactions and the different relationships between them.

In an attempt to draw up a network of players, the Tunisian legal provisions on education in Tunisia endorsed the need to involve a number of palyers. Indeed, chapter two of the orientation law on education, on “the functions of school”, confirms that “the school shall operate, within the scope of its educational duty, in association with the parents and in complete harmony with the family…”

This decree, governing school life, has provided for a chapter entitled “the stakeholders involved in school life” which enumerates and defines the different players including parents, relevant associations, and local authorities.

Yet, the field of citizenship education includes a higher number of players that can be quickly mentioned without paying attention to their ranking and relationships. At the core of the educational process, we can find the pupils, the institutions, and entities belonging to the ministry of education such as teachers, school staff, headmasters, supervisors, local structures, central departments, civic education inspectors, and basic unions.

We can also find political players such as political parties, the government, the ministry, the parliament, civil society organizations, parents, the media, and international partners from governmental and non-governmental organizations.

This multitude and diversity of players makes the process of outlining a map of the stakeholders involved in the field of education on citizenship one of the major challenges.

To the latter hardship, many other challenges may be added. They may be divided into two categories in view of the specificity characterizing the stage through which Tunisia is going:

European societies, albeit at different paces, have undergone profound changes in the fabric of their populations due to EU enlargement, European Citizenship, globalization and migration processes. Traditional concepts of citizenship and citizenship education in Europe have to be revised in the light of these developments.
