Tunis, 6 January 2017: The DCAF supported the Tunisian National League of Police Women (LNTFP) in organizing “an awareness workshop on the importance of the code of conduct of the internal security forces working with the Ministry of Interior for police women."
A working group including representatives from the Ministry of Interior and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) was put in charge of drafting the said code of conduct, and presented, during the workshop, the purpose of the project and the approach adopted in the drafting process.
The consultations step was inclusive, and allowed the LNFPT to review carefully the draft and to make recommendations. The LNFPT presented these recommendations at the workshop and stressed on the importance of including the "gender" dimension in the final code of conduct.
The event gathered high-level representatives from the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Women's Affairs, Family and Children, the international organizations, Tunisian media, the civil society, the People's Representatives Assembly including the chairman and vice-chairman of the Parliamentary Commission for Security and Defense.
The vice chairwoman of the committee, Ms. Leila Chettaoui, contributed to the success of the debate, as she was the moderator of the workshop. The working group and all the participants thanked the LNTFP for its efforts and supported the main proposed recommendations.
The support provided by the DCAF to the LNTFP is part of the whole approach based on: "supporting matters related to management of change among the security service providers."
