Tunisia: should the EU do more?

 Registration is closed for this event
Eight years after the popular uprising that propelled Tunisia towards becoming a democracy, the country is at a crossroads. While progress has been made on civil and political rights, Tunisia's precarious socio-economic situation continues to threaten its future. Against the backdrop of presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for September and October, the question is: how can or should the EU support Tunisia as a unique example of electoral democracy in the southern neighbourhood? Should the EU, as its biggest trading partner, rethink a role in kickstarting Tunisia’s economy? And with departures for Europe increasingly shifting from Libya to Tunisia, what does a future agenda on migration and mobility look like? The debate will tackle some of these crucial questions facing the privileged partnership between the EU and Tunisia.

Free participation in our meetings is a benefit of CEPS membership. Non-members may be admitted for Euro 50, paid in cash at registration. Representatives from the European institutions (Commission – Parliament – Council – EEAS – Committee of the Regions - CESE) & members of the press benefit from free entrance, too. A sandwich lunch will be served from 12.30 onwards.
