Concordia and the National Democratic Institute are teaming up to host a Tweet Talk leading up to the 2016 Concordia Summit panel discussion on “Helping Democracy Deliver: Tunisia as an Example of Economic and Political Transition”.
Participants in this session will address questions such as: What types of political reforms are necessary to address the complex issues of unemployment, poverty and inequality in the Tunisian context? To what extent does the rise of extremist activity in Libya and surrounding territories threaten the progress Tunisia has made thus far? Can decentralization (local elections are expected in 2017) start to address regional inequalities that have long been a source of political tension in the country?
