DCAF launches a new version of its Tunisia security sector legislation database www.legislation-securite.tn

Tunis, 31 August 2016: DCAF launches a new version of its "Tunisia security sector legislation database"
 
Since it was first launched in November 2011, the legal database legislation-securite.tn has been the main reference for anyone interested in legal aspects of the security sector in Tunisia.
The database provides easy access to all relevant legislation governing the security sector adopted since independence in 1956. It contains over 2000 documents - laws, decrees, bills and proposals, legal texts consolidated and updated - exclusively available both in Arabic and French.   
 
The legal database has changed its structure to better respond to the needs of its users and be more adapted to different screens (computers, tablets, smartphones ...). It now provides a more comprehensive content on security sector structured aroundfour key themes:
 
  • New texts: new legislation and regulations;
  • Legislation: different constitutions adopted in Tunisia since independence; laws and regulations, draft laws submitted to the Parliament, unpublished legal texts in the Official Journal of the Tunisian Republic (JORT).
  • Legal news: Press articles;
  • Statistics: a quantitative overview of the legislation.
  •  
    The new interface allows an advanced search thanks to a detailed index including the main themes covered by the database and filters (by text number, year of publication, institution, actor, etc ...). .
     
    Visitors of the site can also easily access draft laws approved by the Council of Ministers and even the legislative proposals related to the security sector made by members of parliament. Visitors can submit comments and monitor the process of adoption of these draft laws and proposals.
     
    In a comparative approach to different regional legislation related to the security sector, the database also provides access to the sister legal database of the security sector in Libya.
     
    This project is part of DCAF's program on "Regulatory Assistance". It is financed through the DCAF Trust Fund for North Africa (TFNA)The Fund is financed by Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland. 
     

    Further information on DCAF is available on the DCAF website or on the DCAF Tunisia website.
