Nordafrika (Ägypten, Tunesien, Marokko, Libyen und Algerien)

Die politischen Umwälzungen 2011 haben in Nordafrika einen langwierigen und ungewissen Übergangsprozess in Gang gesetzt. Das Engagement der Schweiz konzentriert sich darauf, die Länder in ihrer politischen, wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Transition zu unterstützen. Die Projekte sind auf Demokratie und Menschenrechte, nachhaltige und inklusive wirtschaftliche Entwicklung und Erwerbstätigkeit sowie Migrations- und Schutzfragen ausgerichtet.

Die Region Nordafrika umfasst mehrere Länder mit sehr unterschiedlichem Profil, die wegen ihrer weltpolitischen Bedeutung und wegen ihrer Nähe zu Europa wichtige Partner der Schweiz sind. Alle Länder kämpfen mit denselben Herausforderungen: hohe Arbeitslosigkeit, vor allem bei Jugendlichen und bei Frauen, Korruption, regionale Disparitäten sowie politische, wirtschaftliche und soziale Exklusion. Dazu kommen eine fragile Sicherheitslage, eine stagnierende Wirtschaft und grosse Herausforderungen im Migrationsbereich.

Demokratische Transition und Menschenrechte

Die Schweiz trägt dazu bei, die Rechtsstaatlichkeit, die Menschenrechte, den politischen Dialog und die Zivilgesellschaft zu stärken. In Tunesien unterstützte die Schweiz die Wahlen seit 2011 und stellte Expertinnen und Experten zum Verfassungsrecht zur Verfügung. Die Schweiz hilft auch Tunesien und Ägypten ihre Vergangenheit zu überwinden, und unterstützt öffentliche Stellen bei ihren Bemühungen um mehr Transparenz.

Engagement in fragilen Kontexten und Prävention von Gewaltkonflikten

Nachhaltige und inklusive wirtschaftliche Entwicklung und Erwerbstätigkeit

Die Schweiz leistet mit innovativen und pragmatischen Projekten einen Beitrag zur Verbesserung der wirtschaftlichen Perspektiven. Ziele sind eine verstärkte internationale Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und bessere wirtschaftliche Rahmenbedingungen. Die Schweiz teilt ihre Erfahrung in der Berufsbildung und unterstützt Jungunternehmerinnen und Jungunternehmer und schafft Arbeitsplätze. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt ist der nachhaltige Umgang mit natürlichen Ressourcen.

Migration und Schutz

Nordafrika ist traditionellerweise geprägt von zahlreichen Migrationsbewegungen: innerhalb der Länder, der Region und als Ausgangspunkt nach Europa für Menschen, die aus ökonomischen- und Konfliktgründen ihre Heimatländer verlassen. Viele werden dabei Opfer von Gewalt, Rassismus und Ausbeutung, besonders Frauen und Kinder sind stark gefährdet. Die Schweiz arbeitet mit lokalen Behörden, der Diaspora sowie internationalen und bilateralen Organisationen, sie schützt und unterstützt gefährdete Migranten, Flüchtlinge und Opfer von Menschenhandel und setzt sich für deren Rechte ein.

Migration

Geschichte der Zusammenarbeit

Seit 2011 wird das Schweizer Engagement in Nordafrika departementsübergreifend von der Direktion für Entwicklung und Zusammenarbeit (DEZA), der politischen Direktion des EDA, der Abteilung für menschliche Sicherheit (AMS), vom Staatssekretariat für Wirtschaft (SECO) und vom Staatssekretariat für Migration (SEM) umgesetzt. Die Schweiz konzentriert ihr Engagement auf drei thematische Schwerpunkte: demokratische Transition und Menschenrechte, nachhaltige und inklusive wirtschaftliche Entwicklung und Erwerbstätigkeit sowie Migration und Schutz. In Ägypten und in Tunesien ist die Schweiz in allen drei Bereichen tätig. In Marokko ist sie mit einem kleineren Programm präsent und in Libyen und Algerien leistet sie humanitäre Hilfe. Zudem setzt sie sich in Libyen für die Friedensförderung ein.
