Writing an Inclusive Constitution

February 27, 2020

“My belief and the lesson learned is that the woman caucus is a strong vector to push within the parliament the reform regarding the woman rights and the woman equality.”

Lobna Jeribi discusses the opportunity for her to cross over to government. She highlights a women’s caucus that she created and how that helped to strengthen women and minority rights while crafting a new constitution.

Lobna is currently the Minister to the head of government in charge of national grand projects. She won an election and served in the Tunisian National Constituent Assembly as Member of Parliament from 2011-2014. She became Vice President of the Committee for the Preamble, Fundamental Principles and Revision of the Constitution, and Rapporteur of the Committee on Finance, Planning, and Regional Development while in office. She participated in drafting the new more inclusive constitution for Tunisia.
