Convening 28 January 2015
Transitions démocratiques : Regards croisés. Expériences et culture du compromis de l’Europe de 1945 à la Tunisie de 2015
Tunis

This initiative is aimed at promoting a culture of compromise, reciprocal legitimisation and a spirit of political moderation, which all play an unequivocal role in the new Tunisian constitution. Participants will analyse, on the one hand, the fluctuation between radicalisms and polarisation, and on the other, the spirit of dialogue in Tunisian society and its media. At this historic time, with profound changes taking place in the Arab world, with very serious crisis situations, civil wars and violence, the issue of democratic and republican citizenship with be addressed in its various declinations (political, media, constitutional). This will include the constitutional right of “others” – those belonging to difference religions, those who are different, those in political opposition – to be fully acknowledged and included in a country’s democratic life. The same subject will be addressed in comparison to the history of European and, in particular, Italian democracy.

Monograph on the media
Starting with these two study days and parallel to the analysis of the various aspects of the debate between secularists and Islamists in Tunisia, between the media, politics and society during this delicate phase of democratic transition, Reset-Dialogues will commission a monographic analysis within the framework of the Arab Media Report project (www.arabmediareport.it) . The monograph will address the role played by the Tunisian media with differing opinions, in particular public and private television networks, in orienting public opinion, the debate and individual political and legislative choices adopted by each player involved.

The two study days will take place within the framework of the Arab Media Report project promoted by Reset-Dialogues on Civilizations and ENI.
