Project to Support Independent Bodies in Tunisia (PAII-TAC)
The Anti-corruption project (TAC) is implemented in the framework of the Joint CoE/EU programme “Project to support independent bodies in Tunisia - PAII-T”. The project, which started on 1 January 2019 and ends on 31 December 2021, will support the authorities engaged in the fight against corruption and in the implementation of anti-corruption reforms in Tunisia.
The Project’s General Objective is to assist the independent authority for good governance and fight against corruption in Tunisia (INLUCC/IBOGOLUCC), to carry out its mandate and to exercise its statutory powers fully and independently. The current anti-corruption agency (Instance Nationale de Lutte Contre la Corruption, INLUCC), which was set up in 2011, will be replaced by an independent anti-corruption authority, the Instance de la Bonne Gouvernance et de la Lutte Contre la Corruption (IBOGLUCC), in accordance with the Constitution. The Tunisian parliament has adopted the legal basis establishing IBOGOLUCC on 27 August 2018; however, the law hasn’t been implemented yet.
The project will focus on 4 main priorities:
- The internal organisation and effectiveness of INLUCC/IBOGOLUCC are strengthened by the development and implementation of appropriate administrative rules and procedures, as well as by the use of appropriate management tools (ORGANISATION).
- Communication strategies and tools enable INLUCC/IBOGOLUCC to increase its visibility and understanding of its role by media and public throughout the country and the transparency of its action (VISIBILITY).
- Capacities of INLUCC/IBOGOLUCC members and staff are strengthened through general and specialised training and knowledge of peer institutions' methods and approaches allowing it to successfully carry out its mandate (COMPETENCE).
- INLUCC/IBOGOLUCC has consolidated its influence through regular relations with the main national actors – governmental and non-governmental – and with its counterparts, particularly in Europe and the MENA region (INFLUENCE).
