Tunisia in transition

Tunisia’s democratic transition, a contested process put into motion upon the unseating of Zine el Abidine Ben Ali in 2011, was brought to an end in 2021 with the “self-coup” of President Kais Saied. This project considers the political economy of the now halted transition, and draws to light those social, political, and economic variables which have most decisively shaped the post-2021 period.
