It has been 10 years since the Arab Spring, which started in Tunisia in 2011 and forced the exile of its president and strongman, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Now, a democratic Tunisia assumes the UN Security Council rotating presidency in January as an elected member. To discuss Tunisia's priorities and diplomatic strategy, we are joined by Tunisia’s ambassador to the UN, Tarek Ladeb, and Youssef Cherif, director of Columbia University’s Global Center in Tunis and a political analyst specializing in North Africa.

Is it your dream to serve in your country’s foreign ministry, but you don’t know where to start? The Centre for United Nations Studies at the University of Buckingham in the UK is offering a new fully online Masters in United Nations Studies. The degree can be taken full-time over one year or part-time over two. There’s no need to apply for a visa. And the fees are more affordable than the traditional residential master’s degree, which also remains open to potential new students. Graduates will gain a firm grounding in the work of the WHO, UN peacekeeping operations and the UN’s sustainable development goals. They will also learn about global political communication, develop negotiating skills through role-playing exercises, and write a dissertation on a UN-related topic of their choice. Along the way, they’ll have access to mentors with first-hand experience in the UN, such as program director Mark Seddon, a former speechwriter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, and Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, a former UN Deputy Secretary General. Applications for January and Fall 2021 are now open.
