A webinar series on post July 25 Tunisia
Fall 2021, Session 1:
OUIEM CHETTAOUI, "THE JULY 25TH EXPERIENCE: TRANSITION, PERFORMANCE OR SENTIMENT?"
Ouiem Chettaoui is a Public Policy Specialist. She has primarily focused on security sector governance and public policy communication. With her background as an educator (Professeur Agrégé at the University of El Manar in Tunis), she has focused on pedagogy and training innovation as paths to policy reform. Ouiem has also conducted research on questions of economic justice. She is currently the president of the Observatory for Food Sovereignty and the Environment. Ouiem holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy from Oxford University.
On July 25th, national and international observers dissected President Kais Saied’s actions through the lens of democratic and constitutional conformity. In this talk, Ouiem Chettaoui looks at July 25th as a key moment where opinions on, feelings for and expectations of Tunisian democracy reached a fevered pitch; she discusses how Tunisian democracy (or the attempts to forge and maintain it) is perceived and represented domestically and internationally, and the implications these perceptions have for different interest groups.
