Ten years after the Arab Spring, the change promised by that fateful season has been minimal at best. The common thread moving through Arab society in this third millennium is precisely the overall feeling of incompletion, making any prospect of economic revival more dismal due to the arrival of a lethal health crisis. This timely publication, the product of a two day conference held in December 2020, aims to bring together some of the best minds in reflection on the past decade of stumbles and obstacles in the Arab world and what hope does the Tunisian Exception hold for the future.
- With 2020 coming to a close and the European approval for the Covid-19 vaccines, we are starting to see a dim light at the end of the tunnel. Although it may still seem distant, the European Union is looking to rebuild a decimated economy and reposition itself on the global stage.

Our latest e-book collects original pieces based on the conference proceedings and as well as exclusive interviews with Giuliano Amato, Enzo Amendola, and Paolo Gentiloni.
