JID (Jeunes Indépendants Démocrates)

Jeunes Indépendants Démocratiques aims to promote youth involvement in Tunisian politics and civil society.


Jeunes Indépendants Démocratiques (Young Independent Democrats, JID) was created on January 15th 2011, as a response to the revolution by a group of university students. After years of dictatorship in Tunisia, aim to promote youth involvement in politics through civil society action.

JID's work is based on:

  • A deep conviction of the importance of fundamental rights and the human rights.
  • Focus on the question of citizenship.
  • A non-partisan and a- political approach.
JID's goals are to:
  • Provide education for Tunisian young people on human rights, freedom of expression, democracy and citizenship.
  • Emphasize the importance and potential impact of youth participation in politics and active citizenship.
  • Inform young Tunisians on political, social and economic issues.
