“Children conceived through wartime rape often struggle with issues of identity and belonging for decades after the
guns have fallen silent. Their mothers may be marginalized and shunned by their own families and communities.
On the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, we amplify the voices of these forgotten
victims of war, who suffer stigma, shame and exclusion in societies polarized by armed conflict.”

La Tunisie vient de gagner deux points en ce qui concerne la transparence fiscale suite à une opération d’audit effectuée en 2016, et ce résultat qui atteste du respect des normes internationales lui permet d’adhérer au programme Open Government partnership (OGP). Autant cette information provoque satisfaction et optimisme autant elle laisse perplexe au regard de ce que la réalité renvoie.
