The Truth and Dignity Commission is an independent tribunal established by law in Tunisia on 23 December 2013 and formally launched on 9 June 2014 by then-President Moncef Marzouki. Established following the Tunisian Revolution, its purpose is to use both judicial and non-judicial mechanisms to investigate gross human rights violations committed by the Tunisian State since 1955, and to provide compensation and rehabilitation to victims. The Commission was given a four-year mandate with the possibility of a one-year extension, but is expected to deliver its final report in May 2018. Its president is the human rights activist Sihem Bensedrine.
