  1. Who is the Danish Refugee Council?

Founded in 1956, the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a leading international NGO and one of the few with a specific expertise in forced displacement. Active in 40 countries with 9,000 employees and supported by 7,500 volunteers, DRC protects, advocates, and builds sustainable futures for refugees and other displacement affected people and communities. DRC works during displacement at all stages: In the acute crisis, in displacement, when settling and integrating in a new place, or upon return. DRC provides protection and life-saving humanitarian assistance; supports displaced persons in becoming self-reliant and included into hosting societies; and works with civil society and responsible authorities to promote protection of rights and peaceful coexistence.

DRC has been working in Tunisia since 2011 as part of a coordinated Libya-Tunisia program responding to regional instability following the Arab Spring revolutions. DRC has been one of the main implementing agencies providing services in Shousha refugee camp, as well as to refugees living in urban centres in southern Tunisia. From 2014 to 2021, DRC implemented a series of armed violence reduction projects aimed at enhancing community security and resilience in key border towns in Tunisia. In 2022, DRC North Africa has restructured itself and established a joint legal entity for Tunisia and Algeria investing skills and resources to continue to develop its existing portfolio and expand its services to migrants and other displacement affected populations in both countries.

Globally the YIEP component during 2022-2027 phase is led by PLAN international, however, in Tunisia it will be implemented by DRC Tunisia as a country lead, GAME, and MS ActionAid.
