Work

After the Arab Spring - a wave of protests against entrenched regimes in North Africa and the Middle East - the struggle for democracy and human rights was slowed and beaten back in many countries. In Tunisia, the National Dialogue Quartet, a consortium of four organizations: the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT), the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA), the Tunisian Human Rights League (LTDH), and the Tunisian Order of Lawyers, succeeded in creating a peaceful dialogue. Through a mediating role, the quartet allowed political and religious divides to be bridged, and a democratic development followed.
