‘Arab Volcanoes’ Will Erupt

In this episode of Centre Stage, the former president of Tunisia, Moncef Marzouki, explains how being a medical doctor has helped shape his political career, and why the Arab Spring has been a failure — “everywhere”.

Moncef Marzouki was Tunisia’s first president after the Arab Spring uprisings. But less than a decade after he was sworn in, and following a coup, Tunisia’s new government stripped him of his passport and issued an international warrant for his arrest for incitement to overthrow the government.

Today, Moncef Marzouki takes centre stage, to explain his side of the events, and how he sees the future unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.
