A reception to celebrate the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the Tunisian Quartet was organized by the Embassy of Tunisia in New Delhi on 15 December. The event was attended by the diplomatic community, Government authorities and media. The Quartet was awarded the Nobel Prize for its decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the Jasmine Revolution of 2011.
The Quartet was formed in the summer of 2013 when the democratization process was in danger of collapsing as a result of political assassinations and widespread social unrest. It established an alternative, peaceful political process at a time when the country was on the brink of civil war. It was thus instrumental in enabling Tunisia, in the space of a few years, to establish a constitutional system of government guaranteeing fundamental rights for the entire population, irrespective of gender, political conviction or religious belief.
