Join us on an unforgettable journey through Tunisia, the bustling country that sparked the Arab Spring. Led by our CEO Shamil Idriss, you will explore the vibrant culture, learn the rich history, and get a firsthand view of programs by Search for Common Ground to build democracy. As the trip will be family-friendly, we encourage guests to bring children, spouses, partners or friends.

“While we may be accustomed to great leaders providing moral clarity and inspiration — the Martin Luther Kings and Nelson Mandelas of the world — the face of modern peacemaking is much more local…. These local heroes can have a real impact, beneath the headlines of some of the world’s gravest crises.”
