For the first time, young unionists from the German Unions Confederation (DGB) and members of the Youth network of the Arab Trade Unions Confederation (ATUC) were gathered in November, from 16 to 18, 2016 in Tunis.

It was also an occasion for the participants to discuss the reasons and the consequences of migration, to exchange unionists’ experiences and to elaborate a plan to strengthen the cooperation between German and Arab young trade unions.
