Please join us for a roundtable discussion on Tunisia’s constitution on Friday, November 22 at 10 a.m. with our colleagues Duncan Pickard, nonresident fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East; Bassem Bouguerra, founder of the non-profit Tunisian Institutional Reform that focuses on security sector reform (via videoconference from Tunis); and Fatima Hadji, program officer for the Middle East at the National Endowment for Democracy.

The roadmap meant to bring Tunisia out of its political deadlock is facing significant challenges. The national dialogue was suspended after political leaders failed to agree on selecting a caretaker prime minister to lead the government through a tight timetable of finalizing a constitution and preparing for elections. While talks may resume, the judiciary has rejected candidates chosen to form a body tasked with organizing elections. As unmet deadlines pass and the cut-off date to approve a constitution nears, we will explore the latest developments in Tunisia, with a particular focus on the constitution. 


When you arrive please use the West Tower elevators.

Please register by Wednesday, November 20.
