Description

In a region beset by brutal repression, humanitarian disasters, and civil war, Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution resulted in a peaceful transition to a functioning democracy. Within four short years, Tunisians passed a progressive constitution, held fair parliamentary elections, and ushered in the country's first-ever democratically elected president.

What were the particular features that set Tunisia apart from its neighbors? Is the country a model that can be replicated in other Arab countries, or simply an anomaly?

Safwan Masri is executive vice president for global centers and global development at Columbia University. He holds a senior research scholar appointment at Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs, is an honorary fellow of the Foreign Policy Association, and was previously vice dean of Columbia Business School.
