Policy Advocacy

Policy Advocacy

At Mobdiun, we work nationally and globally to mobilize governments, private sector and civil society organizations to raise awareness, foster policy dialogue, initiate programs and change policies around youth issues and violent extremism prevention. 

At the national level, Mobdiun’s study was presented to the National Commission Fighting Terrorism (CNLCT) in Tunisia that published it on its website emphasizing the importance of the study’s findings to understand the root causes of youth radicalization. 

Also, at the national level, Mobdiun co-founded ASL (Alliance for Security and Liberties ASL that also means Origin or Root in Arabic), a nation-wide alliance of civil society organizations working to understand the root causes of radicalization and aiming to influence policies designed to prevent violent extremism. A few weeks after its creation, ASL succeeded in stopping the amendments of the 2015 anti-terrorist law avoiding more restriction on freedoms and hindering the shrinking of civil society space.

Finally, Mobdiun presented the study outcomes to the European Delegation in Tunisia that was inspired by Mobdiun’s recommendations for its youth dedicated grant.

At the regional level, Mobdiun was invited to share its diagnosis and recommendations to bilateral and multi-lateral stakeholders such as UNDP, the International Peace Institute (IPI) and government representatives from North Africa, Sahel and Sahara regions.

At the global level, Mobdiun is the co-founder of WASL (the Women Alliance for Security Leadership – WASL that also means Link in Arabic, Urdu and Farsi) that connects women led grassroots community initiatives with governments and international organizations in order to shape global security and development policies through gendered and bottom up approaches. Three years ago, WASL launched the Global Solutions Exchange platform during the UN General Assembly – championed by the Prime Minister of Norway – in order to enable a consultation mechanism between our local initiatives, governments and multi-lateral organizations. WASL has organized numerous meetings with global stakeholders and published 10 global policy briefs since its creation.
