Network 20/20’s Tunisia Entrepreneurial Diplomacy Program
Tunisia received a lot of attention following the start of the Arab Spring in 2010 as both the genesis of the region-wide uprisings and as one of the only success stories, having transitioned from the Ben Ali regime to a pluralistic democracy with a new constitution. However, gains are proving fragile. The economic dissatisfaction that prompted the Jasmine Revolution persists and political stalemates and infighting threaten its democracy. We believe that understanding the drivers of the current situation and hearing Tunisians’ ideas for solutions, particularly those with solutions that lie with input from the private sector, are areas where Network 20/20 expertise and global network can have a positive impact through awareness-raising, advocacy, or program development.
Tunisia was selected in consultation with Network 20/20’s Advisory Council members and topic matter experts.
What are the program’s objectives?
Who are the participants of the research program?
Network 20/20 will select a delegation comprised of leading professionals that are experts in respective fields.
The delegation will be joined by 2-3 fellows that will provide for additional specific topic expertise and previous experience working in Tunisia (or related areas).
The delegates are members of Network 20/20’s global community that include professionals that come from a variety of sectors and add invaluable perspectives to the challenges & opportunities presented on-the-ground.
