Tunisia’s Unsteady Progress

The Cairo Review of Global Affairs - Nov 24, 2016

“It is six years since the fall of the dictator Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali in Tunisia set off an unprecedented wave of revolts across North Africa and the Middle East. Far from ushering in a period of democratic transition, the ensuing conflicts have witnessed a return to internecine tribal, family, and religious conflict of the worst kind. Tunisia stands out as the only Arab country where a democratic transition of sorts has taken place. Fragile it remains, incomplete also”, Francis Ghilès, associate senior researcher at the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs.
