Caabu congratulates Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet on Nobel Peace Prize

9 October 2015

 

Chris Doyle, director of the Council for Arab-British Understanding, told NBC News that the Quartet had been a "beacon of light" in an otherwise troubled region. 

"This is an absolutely terrific decision," he said. "This award has highlighted the work of unsung heroes who have promoted consensus and the politics of bringing people together rather than dividing them. This is in contrast with the politics of much of the rest of the region." 

He added that "keeping Tunisia from sliding into the disaster ridden mess of some its neighbors is a vital and valuable achievement ... It could so easily have gone in a different direction."
