About PACTUM Project:

The PACTUM Project is a capacity-building project, co-funded by the European Commission Erasmus+ programme, aiming to develop a high-quality, multi-disciplinary and stimulating programme in social, political and behavioural sciences in Tunisia. Academic cooperation in a delicate and rapidly evolving field like that of social sciences – and in particular those disciplines which are central to the formation of future ruling classes and higher civil servants – is a crucial test for prospective cooperation among Tunisian HEIs and European HEIs engaging with capacity building activities.

The goals of the project are:

  • exchange of degree planning experiences in the field of social sciences, organization of preparatory summer schools, design of a master’s course and involvement of social actors and public administration
  • converge on the crucial need to boost positive impact on students and mutual enrichment between European and Tunisian academics. 
  • The training of the future leaders and policy-makers

PACTUM’ s main outcomes will be an integrating Master Program and three annual cycles of five summer schools dedicated to sustainability, good governance and public administration, democratic theories, and participation in the Mediterranean area.
