Tunisia: Implementing New Law Asset Declaration Law

In November and December 2018, NCSC and the Tunisian Anti-Corruption Agency (INLUCC) organized an awareness campaign to inform government officials on their obligations under the new law on the declaration of personal assets and interests. Workshops were organized on November 10 and 11 to clarify the scope of the law and declaration process for the representatives of local government administrations (known as governorates) and ministries, activating partnerships to inform public administration officials and civil servants working under their purview.

NCSC and INLUCC also organized 10 sensitization events and 19 mobile asset declaration reception points in 14 governorates, reaching 1,794 officials and civil servants. The campaign included coaching sessions for officials to fill out the declaration forms, both in electronic and paper formats. This was a country-wide initiative as mobile points and workshops were organized across Tunisia: in Beja, Bizerte, Gabes, Gafsa, Jendouba, Kebili, Mahdia, Medenine, Siliana, Sousse, Tunis, Tataouine, Tozeur, and Zaghouan. 10,000 brochures and 5,000 booklets on the declaration process were printed and shared with participants.

The campaign was organized through the Increasing Accountability in Tunisia Program funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative.
