Ambiguity prevails in the Tunisian political scene after President Kais Saied suspended the parliament.

Among the most daring steps announced by Tunisian President Kais Saied, in addition to the dismissal of the government and the suspension of parliament, was the lift of the Parliamentary immunity of the deputies and issued the presidency of the Public Prosecution Office to initiate lawsuits against a number of them involved mainly in corruption cases. The leap of faith taken by the Tunisian president Kais Saied is creating a new turning point in the path of political transition that began in Tunisia during the fall of the rule of the late President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in 2011. This path underwent many bumps, including two political assassinations in 2013, terrorist attacks, and frequent social unrest against poverty and unemployment, in addition to massive waves of illegal immigration across the sea that led to the death of many Tunisian youngsters along the southern European coast. These factors contributed immensely to the boiling of the 25th of July presidential decisions issued by president Saied. On the 25th of July, president Said relied on the content of Article 80 of the Constitution, which allows him to take exceptional measures in specific situations, benefiting from the protests and riots that swept several Tunisian cities on Sunday 25th. Although many of the general public took Kais Saied’s side and supported his decisions, the parliament said that the president’s decisions are unconstitutional because the dismissal also requires the continuation of the parliament’s work and does not authorize the dismissal of the government. The Tunisian presidency said that the measures announced by Saied will last for a month and so since that period has been extended to another month until all those that are involved with corruption cases are dealt with. Fast-forward today, although some of the Tunisian population opposed Kais Saied’s decisions. It seems that most political factions that were impacted by the president’s actions on the 25th of July are gradually submitting to his role as the decision-maker and somewhat coming to an agreement on to his terms. As of recently, Tunisian President Kais Saied appointed the engineer Najla Bouden Ramadan as prime minister, becoming the first woman to hold this position in the history of Tunisia, and asked her to make her government’s priority to fight corruption while the parliament remains suspended.

Why should Ons Jabeur be Tunisia’s flagbearer at the 2021 summer Olympics?

Less than two weeks ago in Birmingham, Ons Jabeur finally became the first Tunisian, Arab and North African to win a WTA title after defeating Daria Kasatkina in straight sets. On her Centre Court debut against the 2017 Wimbledon champion, Garbine Muguruza, Ons kept writing history and played one of her best tennis matches in her career, as she displayed a combination of talent and mental toughness in order to recover from one set down and clinch the win in the most brilliant fashion. Along the way, Ons set a Centre court record by winning 16 points in a row. The dream continues for the 26-year-old Tunisian who will face former Grand Slam champion Iga Swiatek on Monday for a place in the Quarterfinals.

Beyond how the tournament will unfold, Ons Jabeur’s story is a one to be told to future generations all over the world. The Tunisian talent grew up practicing and playing tennis in her home country. With that, we should refer to the limited resources and infrastructure available in addition to other social dynamics that can create significant barriers in front of a female tennis player. Other than that, Tennis in Tunisia has always been regarded as elitist and out of reach sport, resulting in a limited popularity by de facto. Therefore, it became complicated for young players to believe that they can make it to the highest level while growing up in Tunisia. Before Ons Jabeur, the also-Tunisian Selima Sfar was the highest-ranked Arab female player in history, reaching the 75th spot in the WTA ranking (16 July 2001); however, Selima left Tunis at the age of 13 to live and train with Nathalie Tauziat in Biarritz, France. Hence, we are indeed witnessing a historical moment in sports considering Jabeur’s identity and all that she means to Tunisia, the region, and the game. After reaching the Quarterfinals in the Australian Open in 2020, Ons proudly called herself a “100% Tunisian product”. As a child, Jabeur’s trained in a multi-sport academy in Tunisia from 12 years old. She found comfort at home, where she decided to live permanently. Today, the Tunisian legend is making history almost every time she steps on a tennis court. Ons Jabeur’s achievements this year coincides with the occurrence of Tokyo 2020 summer Olympics. The list of former Tunisian flag bearers includes Oussama Mellouli, Heykel Megannem, Anis Chedli, Noureddine Hfaiedh, Omrane Ayari, Iskander Hachicha, Fethi Baccouche and Salem Boughattas. There has never been a female athlete who had the honor to bear the flag of Tunisia despite having had brilliant female athletes who definitely deserve recognition. This year, Ons Jabeur cannot be in a better position to hold this honor, as she is literally bearing the country’s flag around the world and inspiring the next generation to make a breakthrough. As a matter of fact, the Tunisian trailblazer is the 1st Arab woman to:

– Win a junior Slam (2011 RG)
– Make a Slam 3R (2017 RG)
– Make a Slam QF (2020 AO)
– Win a WTA singles title (2021 Birmingham)

– Make a Wimbledon 4th Round (ongoing)
– Rank inside the Top 70 – Currently highest-ranked ever at No.24.

Humans of IIDebate – Welcome Ameni

 

“Hi my name is Ameni and I am here to gladly share with you a little bit about myself. Some of you might wonder why I haven’t mentioned my age, well let’s just say that since I got to my twenties I have been feeling very old and that whatever I do is never enough to satisfy my ambitions and dreams.

This year, right after I got my Bachelor degree in Management I have decided to look for a job. A few weeks later, I applied as a Fellow at IIDebate on a project called “Youth Talk”.

I’ve only been here for a little less than 2 months, and I can already tell that some of the staff members are very diligent, inspiring, and extremely ambitious, especially Iyed! He has the biggest heart and he is very respectful. He is also one of the most qualified, intelligent people I have ever met. I really appreciate the fact that I can always ask him for help and he doesn’t feel bothered. He is my ray of sunshine in the office.

Most of you don’t know me yet, but I love to laugh and I am a very positive and optimistic person. When I am not working, I enjoy good books, watching movies and soccer. However, what I enjoy most and consider as a hobby is Photography, especially portrait photography. Once you get to know me, you will realize that I am such a hardworking and determined person. I believe that I have a lot of potential and I wish to achieve as many things as possible in life which sometimes makes me feel despondent and always wanting to do more.

Nevertheless, no matter how stressful and intense it might get at work, I am always that bundle of energy and joy. I know that it can get annoying sometimes, but I make it my daily goal to spread good vibes everywhere I go.

By now you might wonder, what inspires me to be active in Civil Society and work at an NGO? Well, during the Jasmine Revolution I had the chance to really understand the main issues that we faced in Tunisia. I then realized that I needed to be part of the change, and I have been very active and making various contributions to help and develop my community and my country.

To Conclude, Freedom is extremely important and essential, especially the Freedom of expression and speech. And if I were to give young people everywhere a piece of advice is to “just be yourselves and to do what your heart truly desires, for the world will conspire to help you fulfill it. Just do you!”

At the end, this is me and I hope you enjoy learning a little bit about my life adventure.”

 

You haven’t had enough of Ameni? Here is more:

Drabzeen Academy Tunisia: Opening Ceremony

Since the willingness to change is generally induced by a specific lacuna within a particular system, the International Institute of Debate initiated the Drabzeen Academy Tunisia project in order to improve the learning experience, and therefore quality education in Tunisia. As a matter of fact, cultivating a generation that is active in the social and political life can never be achieved without the introduction of different and more efficient, inclusive approaches and practices in the capacity building of youth around the country. Capacity building, which is the process by which individuals and organizations obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, tools, equipment and other resources needed to perform better, is a key objective that will be reinforced through the gathering of several partners who are contributing with their expertise and services.

Within Drabzeen Academy, iiDebate is collaborating with MitOst, which is an independent, non-governmental organization that promotes cultural exchange and active citizenship in Europe and its neighboring regions. They are providing their know-how, training tools and manuals to iiDebate’s facilitators in order for youth to benefit from an original and cross-cultural content within a very interactive facilitation method. In addition, iiDebate is partnering with Soliya, an international nonprofit organization that aims at preparing the next generation with the skills, attitudes, and commitment to engage with difference constructively. Soliya is providing our beneficiaries with diverse certified courses and programs known as Connect Program and Facilitation Training Program. Finally yet importantly, The University of Carthage is a major beneficiary from this project and a major contributor to its outreach.

Moving further into details, the Academy provides trainings for different target groups including civil society, institutions, and youth depending on their needs. These trainings include debating, public speaking, Initiation to project management, civic engagement and languages for communication. Therefore, iiDebate trained 20 facilitators on facilitation and training techniques. These facilitators are currently delivering a variety of trainings in different regions of the country voluntarily. Clubs, associations and youth who are interested to be trained on the aforesaid areas of focus can contact iiDebate for further details.

On a different spectrum, on the fifth of Mai, iiDebate has launched its new center located in Tunis. The opening was an occasion to introduce the Academy’s vision, services and new facilities. The Academy offers a variety of courses including Introduction to Public Speaking Course, which is an introduction to speech communication that emphasizes the practical skill of public speaking such as techniques to lessen speaker anxiety, and the use of visual aids to enhance speaker presentations. Its goal is to prepare students for success in typical public speaking situations and to provide them with the basic principles of organization and research needed for effective speeches. Another course is Initiation to Project Management through which participants discover the project life cycle and learn how to build a successful project from pre-implementation to completion. This course will introduce project management modules such as Ideation, Planning, Time management and Fundraising.

Furthermore, the Academy offers the Initiation to Civic Engagement Course that focuses on understanding civic engagement and social change in a global and the Tunisian context. It inspects the visions and roles of the nonprofit and civil society sector in taking effective civic action on key public issues, social justice and democratic governance. It also endeavors to prepare youth for civic engagement through explaining some key social and political practices in Tunisia and the Arab world. Other courses include English for Communication Course that focuses on speaking and listening skills to ensure effective verbal communication and Arabic for Communication Course presenting topical useful and stimulating exercises to get participants to use the Arabic language to converse.

The other Academy’s services include a Co-working spaceBeehive” that provides Drabzeen’s adherents a flexible and friendly environment to learn, cogitate and debate. Some trainings, café-talks and events will be organized in this space in order to diversify the learning strategies and outcomes. Also, One-on-One Coaching as a way to improve youth’s capacities and skills in order for them to progress individually on one level and to contribute to a better community activism on another level. Finally, Public Events will be regularly organized  in order to enlarge the Academy’s outreach and beneficiaries, for instance cine talk ,public debates, movie screening , panels and conferences are to be scheduled soon.

To conclude, the Academy is the opportunity for youth to get ready and equipped to be active in their communities and to develop their skills and competencies within an out-of-the-box environment.
