Instability and Displacement in Tunisia

Tunisia’s recent reversal of democratic freedoms under the presidency of Kais Saied has raised concerns about the country’s democracy and stability.

In this Contours podcast, the Head of New Lines’ Power Vacuums Program, Caroline Rose, sits down with former U.S. Ambassador to Tunisia Gordon Gray and New Lines analyst Alice Hickson to break down the precarious situation.
