Defining Political Choices: Tunisia's Second Democratic Elections from the Ground Up

In a report for the Brookings Center for Middle East Politics, Elizabeth Nugent and I use a unique survey fielded during the 2014 parliamentary elections to shed light on the priorities and preferences of those political actors that democratization seeks to empower— voters. With challenges ranging from border security to employment, how do Tunisian voters decide how to cast their ballots? And to what extent do the policy programs of Tunisian parties mirror the views and commitments of their constituents?

We'll discuss our findings at a Brookings lunch event on June 16, 2015. Click here for the paper.
