In December 2010, street demonstrations in Tunisia launched the "Arab Awakening," as countries across the Middle East and North Africa began to protest their governments using non-violent means and social media to organize and raise awareness. The Carter Center has followed events closely, observing history in the making as these countries choose their own leaders after decades of repression. Carter Center panelists, moderated by Vice President for Peace Programs Dr. John Stremlau, include Hrair Balian, Conflict Resolution Program director; Avery Davis-Roberts, Democracy Program assistant director; and Sarah Johnson, Democracy Program assistant director.
