Meeting with Tunisian Leaders and Entrepreneurs

Meeting with Tunisian Leaders and Entrepreneurs Jan 20

On Monday we had a meeting scheduled with the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID). Mia and Nesi went to a morning meeting at the CSID while Jenny worked on her own project from the hotel since CSID’s focus was not related to her research. CSID was really helpful for finding contacts and gave Nesi a chance to talk to the people leading the organization. After that, we went to MEF to spend the rest of the day studying. We went to the city center to eat dinner at the Cafe Theatr, which is a famous cafe attached to the national theater building. It was especially good because it was easy to find vegan food there, a challenge in Tunis.
