25/05/2016 - 26/05/2016

Tunis - The Venice Commission participates in a brainstorming workshop on "the foundations of the independence of independent bodies." The event is organised by the instance of Truth and Dignity, by the UNDP and by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

This workshop will bring together representatives of independent bodies created after the revolution (ISIE, HAICA, INLUCC, IVD, IPSJJ) and aims to discuss the foundations of the independence of these bodies with particular emphasis on the following issues:

- the process of selecting and removing members of the instances;
- the mechanisms and arrangements for monitoring of the instances;
- the administrative and financial autonomy of the instances;
- the relationship between the independent authorities and other authorities.

The participation of Commission experts is funded through South Programme "Towards strengthened democratic governance in the Southern Mediterranean".
