Tunisian foreign policy in a new geopolitical situation

In early 2020, Tunisia started a two-year mandate, for the fourth time, as a non-permanent member of the Security Council (UNSC) until 2022. In addition to this election, Tunisia chaired the Arab League Summit last year and will chair the Francophonie Summit scheduled for December 2020. In view of Tunisia’s significant growing exposure on the international scene, the KAS Regional Program South Mediterranean held a conference to provide food for thought on the opportunities that Tunisia's election to the United Nations Security Council brings.

EU-North Africa Relations: Resetting the Dialogue on Partnership

Panel discussion

In light of the changes and challenges in North Africa, the European Union has been forced to rethink its approach towards the region. While Tunisia is the only North African country engaged in DCFTA negotiations with the EU, it appears as if the traditional instruments of the EU are not effectively responding to the current economic and political setup in the region and leave expectations on both shores of the Mediterranean unfulfilled.
