Tunisia: The Best Hope of the Arab Spring (Feb. 27, 2020)

In December 2010, a young Tunisian set himself on fire to protest injustice, touching off a revolutionary fever that swept the region. The Arab Spring, as it became known, seemed to augur the arrival of a democratic era. But while its reverberations are still being felt in Algeria and Sudan, only Tunisia can boast of new democratic institutions. The Carter Center has worked there since 2011, implementing democracy-strengthening projects and observing the transition, including last fall’s elections. Why did the Arab Spring seemingly work in Tunisia when it was not as successful elsewhere? Hear about the challenges facing Tunisia and what the Center is doing to bolster democracy and human rights.

Moderator:
-Ambassador (ret.) Mary Ann Peters, Carter Center CEO

Panelists:
- Alexis Arieff, Africa policy analyst at Congressional Research Service
- Sarah Johnson, associate director in the Carter Center’s Democracy Program
- Ihsen Sbabti, Tunisian citizen and project officer in the Carter Center’s Tunisia field office

The Carter Center is guided by the principles of our Founders, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Founded, in partnership with Emory University, on a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering, the Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.
