Malak is a law student pursuing the writing of her Master’s thesis in the Faculty of Judicial, Political and Social Sciences of Tunis, interested by the situation of Human Rights and Rule of Law in Tunisia. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Law from the same Faculty in 2020.

Over the past 4 years, Malak has advocated for fighting against corruption and promoting the values of integrity, transparency, and accountability with I WATCH organisation through several programs. In June 2021, she created, as a Parliamentary Assistant, a network of MPs called «Parliamentarians Against Corruption» to promote an anti-corruption legislation. An initiative that had been paralyzed by the President Kais Saied’s coup against a 10-years of hard-won democracy. Also, she worked as a long-term observer of the electoral campaigns for the 2019 elections in Tunisia.

Since August 2021, Malak works as Project Coordinator with I WATCH organisation. She conducted research about the legal framework of fighting against corruption in Tunisia in order to review and adjust it. Also, she organised a series of study days in different regions to revive the dialogue about finance law in the absence of the Parliament. In particular, the participatory workshops held in the presence of different stakeholders and actors to create a common vision for the finance crisis. Through these experiences, she has developed strong skills in project management such as conceptualizing, implementing, monitoring, and reporting about activities in respect of their assigned budget, building partnerships and coalitions, coordinating and communicating with different actors.
