Nord Africa (Egitto, Tunisia, Marocco, Libia e Algeria)

I rivolgimenti politici del 2011 hanno messo in moto un lungo e incerto processo di transizione in Nord Africa. L’impegno della Svizzera mira a sostenere questi Paesi nella transizione politica, economica e sociale. I progetti sono incentrati su democrazia e diritti umani, sviluppo economico e occupazione inclusivi e sostenibili, questioni in materia di migrazione e protezione.

La regione del Nord Africa comprende un gruppo di Paesi con profili molto diversi che per la loro importanza nella politica mondiale e per la loro vicinanza all’Europa rappresentano partner importanti della Svizzera. Tutti questi Paesi devono far fronte alle stesse sfide: elevata disoccupazione, soprattutto giovanile e femminile, corruzione dilagante, disparità regionali ed esclusione politica, economica e sociale, aggravate da un contesto di sicurezza fragile, un’economia stagnante e grandi difficoltà in ambito migratorio.

Transizione democratica e diritti umani

La Svizzera contribuisce a promuovere lo Stato di diritto, i diritti umani, il dialogo politico e la società civile. In Tunisia, la Svizzera ha sostenuto le elezioni a partire dal 2011 e messo a disposizione esperti di diritto costituzionale. La Svizzera aiuta inoltre la Tunisia e l’Egitto a superare il loro passato e appoggia gli enti pubblici nei loro sforzi volti a garantire una maggiore trasparenza.

Riforme economiche e dello Stato

Impegno in contesti fragili e prevenzione di conflitti armati

Sviluppo economico e mercato del lavoro inclusivi e sostenibili

La Svizzera contribuisce a migliorare le prospettive economiche con progetti pragmatici e innovativi che mirano a rafforzare la competitività internazionale e a rinvigorire le condizione quadro economiche. Al riguardo condivide la sua esperienza nel campo della formazione professionale, sostiene giovani imprenditori e imprenditrici e crea posti di lavoro. Un altro tema prioritario è la gestione sostenibile delle risorse naturali.

Istruzione di base e formazione professionale

Sviluppo del settore privato e servizi finanziari

Migrazione e protezione

La storia del Nord Africa è caratterizzata da numerosi movimenti migratori sia all’interno dei Paesi e della regione sia come via di transito per le persone che, spinte da motivi economici o in fuga da conflitti, lasciano la loro terra alla volta dell’Europa. Molti sono vittime di violenza, razzismo e sfruttamento, in particolare donne e bambini che sono i più esposti ai rischi. La Svizzera collabora con le autorità locali, la diaspora e le organizzazioni internazionali e bilaterali, protegge e sostiene i migranti a rischio, i profughi e le vittime della tratta di esseri umani difendendone i diritti.

Migrazione

Storia della cooperazione

Dal 2011 l’impegno svizzero nel Nord Africa coinvolge vari dipartimenti ed è portato avanti attivamente dalla Direzione dello sviluppo e della cooperazione (DSC), dalla Direzione politica del DFAE, dalla Divisione Sicurezza umana (DSU), dalla Segreteria di Stato dell’economia (SECO) e dalla Segreteria di Stato della migrazione (SEM). La Svizzera concentra il suo impegno su tre priorità tematiche: transizione democratica e diritti umani, sviluppo economico e occupazione inclusivi e sostenibili, migrazione e protezione. In Egitto e in Tunisia la Svizzera è attiva in tutti e tre i settori. In Marocco è presente con un programma minore e in Libia e in Algeria fornisce aiuto umanitario. In Libia si impegna anche per la promozione della pace.
