Chéma Gagouri on Tunisia

I’ve met Chéma during the Global Citizen Forum held by the British Council a few years ago. Her work aims to empower women in Tunisia to become entrepreneurs. She is convinced that only broad grassroot movements will drive change and somehow guarantee sustainability.

In our SKYPE conversation she gives us insights into

– Tunisia’s culture,
– Islam and democracy,
– what people want and don’t want in Tunisia,
– the transformattion process her country is currently experiencing and
– the disconnectedness of the government from the people.

It’s a pleasure talking with her.
