The purpose of this mission was to assess the ways in which support may be provided to the countries‟ civil societies in light of the „Islamic Awakening‟ and post-revolution period. This is to ensure the formation of a direct relationship between Egypt, Tunisia and UJN. By doing so, the skills and knowledge needed to establish an Islamic model of justice and human rights can take root throughout society.
