Keynote Address

Moncef Marzouki is a medical doctor by profession and a human rights pioneer and activist by predilection. Dr. Marzouki founded the Tunisian National Committee for Liberties and went on to become president of the Arab Commission on Human Rights. Elected the first president of post-uprising Tunisia by the newly elected Constituent Assembly, Dr. Marzouki steered that country through its turbulent new beginning, lifting the state of emergency, appointing a prime minister from the moderate Islamist Ennahda movement, and establishing a Truth and Dignity Commission to guide national reconciliation.
