This policy brief presents the preliminary findings from field research conducted by the Jasmine Foundation for Research and Communication in Dowar Hicher, Tunisia. The brief explores the relationship between human security programming, state-centric security policies, and PVE efforts there. It discusses interesting factors like marginalization and self-isolation as a result of human insecurity in the area and how this is reflected in several forms of self-inflected isolation that undermines the overall trust in and relation with the state.

This brief is part of the regional project “Towards More Effective Human Security Approaches in the Context of the Emerging Threat of Violent Extremism in Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia.” Findings from the four briefs previously published on Jordan, and two on Lebanon, as well as forthcoming ones on Tunisia will feed into analytical research papers, which will be published later this year. Over the coming months, the WANA Institute will publish the remaining policy briefs on the fieldwork conducted in Tunisia and Lebanon.
