The Nobel Peace Prize 2015 will go to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet for their contribution to building a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia.

In this breakfast seminar, we will discuss the many facets of dialogue processes – with regards to Tunisia as well as elsewhere. The day before the award ceremony of the Nobel Peace Prize it is fitting to contemplate:

  • What is a National Dialogue?
  • Are National Dialogues replacing traditional peace mediation?
  • What does the Nobel Peace Prize mean for the democratic process in Tunisia?
  • What are the implications for other peace processes, in Colombia, Myanmar, Syria and beyond?
