Legislation is one of the main tools used by governments to regulate the work of civil society. In this regard, KADEM seeks to enhance the legislative environment in partnership with national, regional and international partners.  

These efforts take the form of advocacy to local partners on the state obligations toward civil society, technical support to legislators, and capacity-building to different stakeholders.

One of KADEM’s projects, in this regard, was "Enhancing the Guiding Principles for NGOs, Governments and Partners in the MENA region" in four Arab countries (Bahrain, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco).

KADEM also supported the reform of Civil Society Law in Tunisia, with the support and expertise of international partners.

During periods of transition, various types of conflict may arise at the social and political levels. Mediation could be a key approach to ease these tensions and facilitate dialogue between the parties in conflict.

KADEM contributes to this effort through providing capacity-building to different stakeholders (government officials as well as civil society) to better play a mediation and/or facilitation role in these conflicts.

As part of its efforts to improve the legislative and enabling environment of civil society, KADEM addresses the issue of public funding to CSOs in Tunisia.

These efforts aim at improving an important component of the relations between government and civil society. Reforming legislations and regulations according to the principles of transparency and accountability can only improve the work of civil society and increase the efficiency of government support to these organizations.

KADEM is involved in a number of national, regional and international dynamics that aim at supporting the work and development of civil society. In this respect, KADEM is member of different networks, coalitions and working groups. KADEM also teams up with partners providing capacity-building and enhancement to civil society.

KADEM is a technical, non-governmental regional organization specialized in knowledge transfer, expertise-sharing and capacity-building in the field of democratic transition.  It is founded on the principle of partnership among organizations and experts across the Arab region and beyond.KADEM was set up in Amman, Jordan, in June 2006. Following the Revolution in Tunisia, KADEM was registered in July 2011 as an association subject to Tunisian law.

KADEM seeks to enhance the contribution of Arab civil societies to democratic transition processes, thereby strengthening the foundations of national sovereignty, and promoting good governance based on social justice, economic development, gender equality, and broad popular participation in decision-making, as well as on the principles of rule of law, transparency, protection of human rights and individual/public freedoms, and peaceful alternation of power.
