Conference: Tunisia’s Empowerment Through Decentralization

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Tuesday, 11 September 2018 16:00 - 17:30

Venue: Carnegie Europe  |  City: Brussel

Tunisia’s decentralization process has tremendous potential. It is both symbolically important, as a key step toward consolidating the country’s democratic transition, as well as a practical step toward correcting some of the regional injustices that occurred before the Arab Spring.

However, to be successful, the central government, local government, civil society, and international donors must each invest in the process. Recent legislation to more tightly regulate civic groups in the country has sounded alarm bells among Western supporters—including the European Union— that Tunisia’s difficult postrevolution transition may be in danger.

Carnegie’s Sarah Yerkes will discuss her latest paper, Decentralization in Tunisia: Empowering Towns, Engaging People (co-authored by Marwan Muasher), outlining how Tunisia’s central and local governments, civil society, and international donors can continue to move the country’s democratization process forward. Yerkes will be joined by Patrick Costello. Carnegie’s Marc Pierini will moderate.

Copies of the paper will be available at the event, and a light reception will follow.
