The King and The Crown Princess meet Tunisia's National Dialogue Quartet

On Tuesday 15 December, The King and The Crown Princess held an audience with representatives from Tunisia's National Dialogue Quartet, which was awarded the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize.

The organisation won the prize for its work for democracy in Tunisia in connection with the Arab Spring. The quartet was created in summer 2013 when there was a risk of the democracy process breaking up. The organisation established an alternative, peaceful political process when the country was on the brink of civil war.
