Background

The third phase of the Support Programme for the Tunisian Government in the field of Integrated Border Management (IBM Tunisia III), funded by the Federal Republic of Germany, the Kingdom of Denmark and the Republic of Austria, provides for continued support to the various structures responsible for border management, for the modernization and capacity-building of the Tunisian authorities and for the improvement of good governance by promoting border security, stability and regional cooperation to facilitate trade and promote the movement of persons and goods.
 
This support includes the setting up of two complementary inter-agency training sites for the operational preparation of staff from the various structures responsible for border management. These two training centres are part of an existing system and, in partnership with the respective schools and/or training centres of each Structure, will enable staff on the ground to acquire the skills needed to conduct their joint operational activities and the tasks incumbent upon them within the framework of their respective mandates and in full compliance with international practices and standards.

As an inter-agency Pole of Excellence, these two training centres will in the short term have a national dimension. In the medium and long term, these centres will have the vocation to acquire a regional dimension since they will be able to facilitate the development of Tunisian know-how in the field of border management, as well as internationally recognized good practices. They will also serve as a support point for various initiatives under the aegis of Tunisia to train their counterparts in neighbouring countries.
