conversations, workshops, teaching, conferences and debates that are geared towards the promotion of sustainable democracy and democratic sustainability (interchangeably).

Its normative mantra is that solutions to the challenges for fledgling democracies in Tunisia and the wider Arab World must derive from the locale. Solutions will not come from overseas. They are continuously honed through ever-evolving skills of democratic learning and unlearning. Such pedagogic democratic processes represent dynamic interactions of inclusive, collective, local, global (cross-regional), new and old synergies invested into the healthy innovation and flourishing of good government at the levels of attitudes, values, thought, practice and institutions.

The flow of democratic knowledge  is multiple and multilateral.

Thus, Demos Tunisia is committed to studying and offering qualitative and quantitative measures of the quality of sustainable democracy and democratic sustainability.

Our goal is to work with local (Tunisian) and cross-regional (MENA, European, Latin American, African, Asian and American) stakeholders to develop and offer assessment of the quality of democratic sustainability innovatively to account for:

1. The skills of democratic learning and unlearning

2.  Social justice in the form of socio-ecomomic goods as co-progenitors, along with political equality and rights, of dignity and freedom

The Democratic Sustainability Forum (Demos-Tunisia) is a non-partisan, non-government organization registered in Tunisia that:

1-    Undertakes to promote and study sustainable democracy and democratic sustainability

2-    Upholds civic values to be central for democratic transition and democratic learning.

3-    Works towards the continuous adaptation of citizens and institutions to the demands of time-honored values of freedom, dignity, equality, inclusiveness, social and restorative justice.

Demos does this through: 

·  Using research, outreach, monitoring, education, and deliberation for the diffusion of democratic ideas, norms and practices;

· Emphasizing local knowing and traditions, enriched with cross-cultural and cross-regional experiences and practices;

·  Contributing to the deepening of sustainability of newly acquired freedoms and civic space in Tunisia; and

· Harnessing advocacy and creative research to align existing opportunities, capacities and knowledge with the goals of democratic sustainability.  

Demos’s administrative and working languages are English and Arabic. It disseminates its multi-modal publications, findings, reports, and activities to local and international publics and stakeholders in the two languages
