Tunisia: Progress achieved and prospects for the social dimension

30-11-2017

In 2011, following the outbreak of protests – known as the Jasmine Revolution – which toppled President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's regime, Tunisia embarked on a path to democratic transition and socio-economic transformation, emulating the reforms and governance practices of established liberal democracies.

Tunisia economic situation

09-09-2016

The revolution that toppled Tunisia's authoritarian regime in 2011 left multiple sectors of the economy struggling in its wake, and the ensuing political instability, decreased foreign investment and security threats have only complicated their recovery. To address these challenges, the government, elected in 2014, has pursued policies aimed at supporting economic activity while also seeking to resolve long-standing socio-economic grievances voiced during the uprisings.

Tunisia: Political groups and parties

08-09-2016

In December 2010, a Tunisian street vendor set himself on fire in apparent protest against state repression and systematic economic hardship, triggering a series of uprisings across Tunisia and the Middle East, commonly known as the 'Arab Spring'. President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Tunisia's authoritarian leader since 1987, was forced out of power after his government reverted to violence against demonstrators.

In December 2010, a Tunisian street vendor set himself on fire in apparent protest against state repression and systematic economic hardship, triggering a series of uprisings across Tunisia and the Middle East, commonly known as the 'Arab Spring'. President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Tunisia's authoritarian leader since 1987, was forced out of power after his government reverted to violence against demonstrators. Although the nascent democracy has been praised internationally for its attempts to bring about reform, Tunisia's democratically elected parties have been facing multiple challenges, such as economic difficulties, regional divisions and an unstable security situation coupled with political rifts threatening to upset the country's political stability.

Tunisia: Human rights situation

Following the Jasmine Revolution, the EU called for a 'privileged partnership' with Tunisia due to its commitment to democratic reforms. Despite ongoing economic hardship and political instability, Tunisia managed to hold elections that got international acclaim and to adopt a new constitution in 2014. Significant improvements in civil, gender and other rights have accompanied the transition.

Tunisia: Democracy in transition

13-06-2016

Tunisians adopted a new constitution in January 2014 and held national elections between October and December 2014, marking the completion of a four-year transition period.

Further macro-financial aid to Tunisia

18-05-2016

The Tunisian economy has faced serious difficulties since the 2011 revolution. In 2015, the economic situation was significantly affected by the terrorist attacks and production disruptions, exacerbating the country's already weak fiscal and balance of payments position and resulting in sizeable financing needs. As part of the EU's commitment to supporting the consolidation of democratic mechanisms in the country, the European Commission has proposed to grant macro-financial assistance (MFA) to Tunisia ...

The Tunisian economy has faced serious difficulties since the 2011 revolution. In 2015, the economic situation was significantly affected by the terrorist attacks and production disruptions, exacerbating the country's already weak fiscal and balance of payments position and resulting in sizeable financing needs. As part of the EU's commitment to supporting the consolidation of democratic mechanisms in the country, the European Commission has proposed to grant macro-financial assistance (MFA) to Tunisia for a second time, amounting to a maximum of €500 million. The proposed regulation would follow the first grant of MFA, of €300 million, approved in 2014, the last tranche of which is expected to be disbursed in the second quarter of 2016. MFA is intended as a complement to financing from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). A more recent edition of this document is available.

EU Policies in Tunisia before and after the Revolution

To do that, the most important milestones in the frameworks of cooperation agreed between the EU and Tunisia and the policies implemented, are described.

This study investigates the evolution and potential impacts of EU policies in Tunisia before and after the Revolution using an innovative analytical framework. To do that, the most important milestones in the frameworks of cooperation agreed between the EU and Tunisia and the policies implemented, are described. The impact of such policies before the Revolution and their subsequent evolution, are analysed to highlight the causes and the consequences of the shifting approach of the EU towards Tunisia. Finally, the analysis is complemented with inputs collected via a consultation from key participants across the Tunisian political and civil society landscape. In the pre-Revolution period, EU relations with Tunisia were narrowed down to an exchange of commercial, financial and strategic interests, in line with most development aid programmes across the world. The Tunisian Revolution brought two fundamental dynamics – democratisation and destabilisation – which had broad repercussions on the relations between Tunisia and the EU. These dynamics enhanced the probability of more synergies and complementarities between the two partners’ political projects and the necessity to strengthen financial support, providing the EU with a window of opportunity for enhanced cooperation, underlined in a win-win philosophy, co-development and deeper integration.

EU continues to assist Tunisia's transition

19-02-2016

The launch of negotiations on a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) is a key element in the EU's commitment to supporting democratic consolidation in Tunisia. The commitment is particularly important now, at a time when Tunisia is facing a politically and economically difficult period. The proposed legislation aimed at offering temporary exceptional access for Tunisian olive oil to the EU market is also to be viewed in this context.

Understanding definitions of terrorism

06-11-2015

The international community remains divided over a universally acceptable definition of terrorism. Despite broad consensus that the threat of terrorism needs to be addressed urgently, the positions adopted by individual countries, regional and international organisations have resulted in a patchwork of approaches. This is primarily due to diverging views on what constitutes terrorism, as opposed to exercising peoples' right to self-determination, as enshrined in the UN Charter.
