To help promote a peaceful transition to democracy in Tunisia, a new MEDPRO Commentary by Rym Ayadi, Silvia Colombo, Maria Cristina Paciello and Nathalie Tocci calls upon the EU to act quickly on its declaration of support for “a genuine democratic transition” and to consult with political parties both from the transition government and beyond to prepare for the running of the next elections. A positive resolution of this crisis will only be achieved if the internal and external players follow the lessons of successful democratic transitions elsewhere.
Rym Ayadi is Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) and overall Coordinator of the MEDPRO project. Silvia Colombo is Junior Researcher at the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) in Rome. Maria Cristina Paciello is Lecturer in Economic and Political Geography of Developing Countries at the Faculty of Oriental Studies of ‘‘La Sapienza’’, University of Rome. Nathalie Tocci is Deputy Director of the IAI.
