The Arab Spring that began with Tunisia gave way to a peaceful transition to a functioning democracy – but did Tunisia simply avoid the misfortunes that befell its neighbors, or were there particular features that set the country apart?
Drawing on his recent book, Tunisia: An Arab Anomaly, Professor Safwan Masri of Columbia University will speak on the factors contributing to Tunisia’s experience after the Arab Spring, focusing on its history of reform in education, religion, and women’s rights.
