With both presidential and parliamentary elections due late this year, Tunisia once again faces imminent milestones in its political history. Although many challenges remain, Tunisia has made significant progress since 2011 in the development of democratic institutions and a culture of pluralism. Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki will join the Atlantic Council for an exclusive engagement to discuss successes to date and the how the country can address pressing economic and security challenges as its democratic transition continues. In 2012, the Atlantic Council awarded President Marzouki its Freedom Award in recognition of his unique role and the achievements of the Tunisian people. 

Moncef Marzouki has served as president of the Republic of Tunisian since December 2011. He was elected by the National Constituent Assembly after the protests that sparked the removal of autocratic ruler Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali and uprisings across the region.
