Overview

The Tunisian revolution sparked regional uprisings of an unprecedented scale, with calls for political inclusion, electoral reform and dynamic shifts in power configurations.

With elections imminent, how will Tunisia rise to the challenge of implementing the reforms of the revolution?

This roundtable discussion will focus on the current situation and the new political realities in Tunisia, with the involvement of two prominent political opposition figures, Hamadi Jebali, Secretary General of the An-Nahdha party (the largest Islamist party in the country) and Mokhtar Yahiaoui, a senior human rights activist and member of the High Commission responsible for planning the 24 July elections.
