THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2013-12-18

Can Tunisia buck the trend ? (part 2)

Could the nation that three years ago today witnessed the first spark of the Arab Spring… now be its last hope? It's been a rollercoaster ride for Tunisia since a desperate street vendor in sleepy Sidi Bouzid set himself alight to protest the relentless shakedowns of the police. Can this small nation of 10 million succeed where others have failed in completing its revolution, by getting Islamists and secular parties to agree and abide by common rules?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis
