Global Leaders: Conversations with Alon Ben-Meir featuring Ambassador Mohamed Khaled Khiari
Start Date: 4/19/2018Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Date: 4/19/2018End Time: 7:45 PM

Event Description:

Tunisia, where the Arab Spring began and ended.

Tunisia has been the only country able to maintain a democracy in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. While the Arab Spring spread across the region, it failed to materialize anywhere else in the Arab world. The focus of our discussion will be why this wave of revolutionary awakening among young Arabs failed to be realized elsewhere, will it be revived, and in what form, given the changing socio-political dynamics in the Arab world, and the continuing quest of Arab youth for a better and brighter future.

Join CGA Senior Fellow in Global Affairs, Alon Ben-Meir, in conversation with Ambassador Mohamed Khaled Khiari, Permanent Representative of Tunisia to the United Nations.


Ambassador Mohamed Khaled Khiari has served as the Permanent Representative of Tunisia to the United Nations since late 2012.

From September 2011 until his latest appointment, Mr. Khiari was Director of Human Rights within the Department of International Organizations and Conferences at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  He was previously appointed Chargé de Mission in the Ministry of Youth and Sports in July 2009, and Deputy Director, Euromed, within the Ministry’s Europe Department in September 2006.

Alternating between Foreign Ministry headquarters in Tunis and overseas postings, Mr. Khiari was assigned to the Permanent Mission of Tunisia to the United Nations at Geneva in October 2003, after having been appointed Deputy Director in the Human Rights Department at the Ministry in September 2002.  He had previously been posted to his country’s Embassy to the European Union in Brussels in September 1996.

Prior to his October 1994 appointment as Acting Deputy Director for the United Nations and the Security Council in the Ministry’s Department of International Organizations and Conferences, he was assigned to the Cabinet of the Minister for Foreign Affairs in March of that year.  August 1987 saw his first posting to the United Nations in Geneva, having joined the Ministry’s Department of Maghreb Countries in 1984.

Mr. Khiari is a graduate of the Haut Institut de Gestion in Tunis, where he earned a master’s degree in management, specializing in marketing.

Born in Hammam-Lif, Tunisia, in 1960, he is married and has two children.
