U.S. Congress Representatives Train Tunisian Deputies on COVID-19 Crisis Management 

Within its MEPI funded project to support political parties in Tunisia, the International Republican Institute (IRI) organized in cooperation with the House Democracy Partnership a third virtual exchange between the U.S. Congress and Tunisian Members of Parliament. The session focused on crisis management and the role of legislators in addressing the challenges of COVID-19 in democracies worldwide. Both the Tunisian deputies and U.S. Representatives shared their experiences and discussed how their work is changing under social distancing and the public health and economic crises caused by COVID-19.
