Focus – Assessment of Tunisian democracy, 10 years after the revolution


Published on:

January 14, 2011 was a historic day for Tunisia. After 29 days of an unprecedented uprising and during the first of the Arab Spring revolutions, dictator Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali was overthrown by his own people. A decade later, how is the young Tunisian democracy doing? Free elections have taken place, but politics are often tumultuous. Some 13 different governments have ruled the country in the decade since the revolution, amid an ongoing economic crisis. Our correspondents spoke with ordinary Tunisians, as well as politicians and activists, to get their point of view on the democracy of their country.
