Tunisia: six years of democratic transition

Tunisia has been practicing for six years a new democratic political life. The institutions have been created and a  new  constitution drafted with political consensus has been approved. The transition, however, runs into obstacles  and  faces dangers that have been analyzed  at a seminar in Helsinki organized by the Finnish Institute of International  Affairs (FIIA), in the framework of the EuroMeSCo ENI Project.


The seminar marked the launching of the Joint Policy Study "Transformation in Tunisia: the first five years" edited by the EuroMeSCo network and coordinated by FIIA senior researcher Wolfgang Mühlberger.


The researchers who have collaborated in the study participated in the seminar. Among them were Emmanuel Cohen-Hadria, head of the IEMed Department of Euro-Mediterranean Policies; Isabel Schäfer, researcher at the German Institute of Development (DIE); Cengiz Günay and Sherin Gharib, researchers at the Austrian Institute of International Affairs (OIIP); Stefano Torelli, researcher at the Italian Institute of International Political Studies (ISPI), as well as Teijin Tiilikainen, director of FIIA.
