Toward a New Citizenship

Toward a New Citizenship

In September 2012, The Arab Policy Institute organized a conference titled “Transition in Tunisia: Towards a New Citizenship” in collaboration with the Moulay Hichem Foundation for Social Science Research on North Africa and Middle East. The conference, hosted on September 4-5, 2012 in Tunis focused on themes such as democratic transitions, the relationship between religion and politics, and the prospects for ensuring for basic human rights in post-revolution Tunisia. This conference was hosted at a particularly tense moment in Tunisia’s democratic transition following the election of the National Constituent Assembly and after several tense debates between secular and Islamist trends. Despite this, the conference included a frank, successful discussion between participants and  Rached Ghannouchi, head of the Tunisian Islamist party, Ennahda.
