(CNN) -- IN FOCUS: Syria On The Brink

The prospect of bringing peace to Syria seems farther away than ever. Despite international efforts to stem the ongoing violence in the country, many fear that Syria is getting dangerously close to all out civil war. This week MME takes a deeper look into Syria and the impact of sanctions on the country.

FACETIME: Mustapha Kamel Nabli

The uprising in Tunisia that ended the rule of veteran leader Zine Al-Abidine Ben Ali had a domino effect. It sparked popular revolts against dictators and autocrats in North Africa and the Middle East. It also deepened Tunisia's economic problems.

This week MME spoke to Tunisia's Central Bank governor, Mustapha Kamel Nabli, about how growth is gradually coming back, and his outlook for the year ahead.
