November was the month of the Nobel Peace Prize awards. When we were discussing the nominees with our Tunisian partners, we learned that in 2015, the prize went to a Tunisian Association of Organizations.
The Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet received the Nobel Peace Prize for “a decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia following the 2011 Jasmine Revolution”.
The Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet is a group of four organizations that became the central force for building a democratic state in Tunisia after the Jasmine Revolution. The association was founded in 2013 and included:
- the General Tunisian Confederation of Labor;
- the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Commerce and Crafts;
- the Tunisian Human Rights League;
- the Tunisian Order of Lawyers.
