It has been a warm year in West and North Africa, and heat waves -as well as floods- became more frequent. From climate and public health to politics and the economy, these are changing and challenging times that the geopolitical games have complicated.
Nonetheless, our team kept growing, and, since the dissemination of Covid-19 vaccines, we have resumed in-person activities at Columbia Global Centers|Tunis. We have also increased our partnerships, be it on campus in New York City or in the region, both public and private, local and international.
This report is an attempt to catch the achievements of 2021- 2022, the year we returned to a semblance of normality, achievements that were realized thanks to our partners, supporters, and the dedicated staff of CGC Tunis.
Decades of history bind Columbia University to West and North Africa, a responsibility that our Center has chosen to embrace and enhance through its programs and activities.
From education to entrepreneurship and from arts to public health; for years we have worked on many programs, organized hundreds of events, and connected people across different continents.
This report shows how we have brought Columbia's expertise not only to Tunisia but also to West and North Africa and how we have shared our local vision of today's global challenges.
