In Tunisia, the 2011 revolution that inspired the Arab Spring overthrew a government that did not respect basic human rights and political rights, paving the way for the country’s first free elections. Currently, religious and secular forces jockey for power within the democratic system, and Tunisian society is polarized by heated debates over its future. In this period of change marked by new freedoms and new conflicts, the country has made impressive progress in protecting representation and rights for women. Our team in Tunisia supports efforts to address their country’s conflicts constructively. We are assisting in the growth of Tunisia’s young democracy through a leadership development program for youth and through the training of media organizations.
