Med Dhia Hammami

Consultant, journalist, and researcher in Tunisia

6 years after graduation from High School in Tunisia, I'm starting a new adventure as an undergraduate freshman at Wesleyan University in the United States.

I am currently working on a research project about Transformative Justice in Tunisia's natural resources sector in collaboration with University of York. At the same time, I am preparing an investigative case-study about corruption in the Tunisian oil and gas sector with Platform London and I am participating to a weekly radio program at the Tunisian National Radio as a chronicler.

I previously worked as a consultant for Natural Resource Governance Institute, Avocats Sans Frontières, I Watch and other governmental and non-governmental organisations. I wrote for them many reports and studies about natural resource related issues.

When I was working at Nawaat as a journalist, I published many investigations about natural resources in Tunisia. Many of them led to the opening of criminal investigations in Tunisia's financial judiciary pole.

I worked also as a parliamentary assistant at the National Constituent Assembly. That allowed me to learn how to lobby for or against a law. This experience was very useful to me when I lobbied for the Article 13 of the new Tunisian Constitution about sovereignty over natural resources and about the parliamentary control of extractive contracts.
