Tunisia: Facilitating Exchange with Quebec Administrative Tribunal

From November 18-22, NCSC and the International Legal Assistance Consortium (ILAC) facilitated the visit to Tunisia of the General Director of the Administrative Tribunal of Quebec to share best practices and reform strategies to improve case processing and services to litigants with counterparts at the Administrative Tribunal of Tunisia. The exchange focused on the organization of administrative personnel, the role of court clerks in case management, and the challenges and opportunities presented by digital transformation.

Following a series of bilateral meetings, a day-long workshop was held on November 22 with representatives of the central jurisdiction and regional chambers. In addition, two roundtables were organized with representatives of the regional chambers in Sousse, Monastir, Nabeul, Kef, and Kasserine. A total of 56 judges and clerks from the Administrative Tribunal in Tunisia participated.

The Improving Court Administration at the Administrative Tribunal Program is implemented by NCSC under a sub-award from the International Legal Assistance Consortium and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
