Event Agenda

Foreign Policy

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.
