#Zaama Tunisia is on the right track?

In December of 2020, Tunisia will celebrate the first decade of the Jasmine Revolution, which was sparked on December 17, 2010, and ended on January 14, 2011 with the fall of the Ben Ali regime. And every year, Tunisians count the achievements and frustrations of what is considered the only success story of the region-wide Arab Spring. Some analysts and observers of national affairs consider that Tunisia was able to gradually consolidate its democratic transition through the peaceful transfer of power, free and fair elections, freedom of the press, and the guarantee of people's rights in a new constitution on par with those in established democracies. Others believe that Tunisia veered off the course of the revolution and its core demands of improving Tunisians’ daily lives - a goal that has proven elusive for successive governments since.

Today, on the tenth anniversary of the revolution, we therefore ask: #Zaama Tunisia is on the right track?

About Us

Arab scholars have a long and storied history of debate, and Munathara is building upon this tradition to support all Arabic speakers to participate in shaping the future of the region. We believe it is more important than ever before for rational, reasoned and constructive discourse to be the forge in which ideas are expounded, tested and improved upon for the benefit of all.

Community Participation

Parallel to its online outreach campaigns, The Munathara initiative works closely with local and regional civil society organisations. Munathara’s certified outreach debate trainers provide on the ground training sessions...

Online Engagement

During the Arab Spring, social media platforms played a vital role in the dissemination of information between different regions. By the end of 2019, internet penetration rates in the Arab region reached 70%.

Live Debates

The winners on each side of an online debate are invited to partner with a policy maker and engage in a live, televised debate that is broadcast throughout the Arab world.
