The Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet (Arabic: الرباعي التونسي للحوار الوطني‎, French: Quartet du dialogue national) is a group of four civil society organizations. They focus on democracy and the constitutional settlement in Tunisia.

The quartet was formed in the summer of 2013 after a political crisis.[1]

On 9 October 2015, the quartet was awarded the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize.[2][3]
