Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism in Tunisia

November 16, 2016 • 12:30 PM • Law School 4045

Join Amna Guellali, a Tunisia and Algeria Researcher of the Middle East and North Africa Division at the Human Rights Watch, for a lecture titled "Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism in Tunisia." In December 2010, Mohamed Bouazizi, a Tunisian street vendor, set himself on fire in protest, which served as a catalyst for the Tunisian Revolution and the broader Arab Spring. Nearly six years on and in an increasingly securitized environment, this event will focus on human rights and counter-terrorism and the example of Tunisia. Lunch will be provided. Co-sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic, Center for International and Comparative Law, International Law Society, Human Rights Law Society, Center for French and Francophone Studies, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, and the Citizen Journalists in the Middle East and North Africa, in conjunction with the Franklin Humanities Institute and the Vice President for Public Affairs and Government Relations.
