LIZ NUGENT & CHANTAL BERMAN

Chantal Berman and Elizabeth Nugent spent the fall of 2014 in Tunis, Tunisia, conducting research on the country’s ongoing transition to democracy. On the day of the October legislative elections – the second democratic elections in Tunisia’s history – they teamed up with the Tunisian NGO Sawty to field an exit survey of nearly 1200 Tunisian voters. Forty-two enumerators were stationed at polling stations across five governorates to gather unique data on the preferences, ideologies, and social backgrounds of voters for different parties as they exited the polls.
