Dr. Noureddine Jebnoun Book Launch – Tunisia’s National Intelligence: Why “Rogue Elephants” Fail to Reform

January 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies invites you to join us for an event to launch Dr. Noureddine Jebnoun’s latest book TUNISIA’S NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE: WHY “ROGUE ELEPHANTS” FAIL TO REFORM.

Dr. Jebnoun, a long-time adjunct faculty member at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies focusing on politics, governance challenges, and security trends of the Arab Middle East and North Africa, will present on the research findings in his book and discuss its overarching themes. His presentation will be followed by a reception in which books will be available for purchase. 

Tunisia’s National Intelligence: Why “Rogue Elephants” Fail to Reform draws on extensive fieldwork and original data, examining the political and security evolution of Tunisia’s national intelligence in the post-independence era. It investigates the sophistication of the intelligence complex under Bin ʿAlī and its central role in entrenching his authoritarian rule.
