POMED and the Heinrich Böll Foundation, in partnership with the Tunisian organization Afkar, are pleased to announce a one-day conference in Tunis on Sunday, July 8th. The event will examine critical issues surrounding U.S. and European assistance to support democracy and governance programs in Tunisia, and will also explore some of the broader economic challenges facing the country today. As Tunisians focus on the practical challenges of economic development and governance, among other priorities, now is an essential time to consider opportunities for constructive support from the international community.
