Balancing Political Stability & Economic Prosperity

Join us for a congressional briefing to discuss the latest political developments in Tunisia in the aftermath of the passing of President Caid-Essebi, the upcoming presidential elections, and their potential repercussions on the stability of the country. The briefing will also be an opportunity to discuss the current bilateral strategic investment framework dialogue between Tunisia and the United States.
We are excited to be joined by three newly elected municipal officials who were part of Tunisia’s historic 2018 democratic elections, and who are participants in the inaugural Tunisian cohort of the U.S. – MENA Experiential Partnership – a year-long, hands-on good governance learning exchange between American and Tunisian public officials, supported by the U.S. State Department’s Middle East Partnership Initiative.

Lunch & refreshments will follow the briefing.

Panelists:

Dr. Rita Stephan, Director of the U.S. State Department's Middle East Partnership Initiative

Dr. Daniel Brumberg, Associate Professor in Government, Georgetown University

The Honorable Imen Karoui, Councilwoman, Sfax, Tunisia

The Honorable Sami Khalfallah, Councilman, Dar Chaabane El Fehri, Tunisia
