Tunisia: Now Comes the Hard Part (part 2)

The strongman’s gone, his former ministers are now gone too. Still the rowing continues over what next. François Picard’s all-Tunisian panel downplays the risk of a coup if it all drags on too long but does admit that speed is of the essence in establishing a roadmap for democracy.

A debate with François Picard and Guests:

Hikael TARSHUNA, Tunisian lawyer
Moncef CHEIKH-ROUHOU, Professor of international Finance (by Skype from Tunis)
Hamadi REDISSI, Professor of Political Science, University of Tunis and Founder of the Arab Center of research and analysis (by phone from Tunis)
Sélim BEN HASSEN, President of Byrsa Citizen Movement (by phone from Tunis)

Program prepared by Yi Song and Perrine Desplats
