It's not often that the actions of one man can set in motion events that affect millions of people. But so it was for Mohamed Bouazizi, a Tunisian street vendor who set himself on fire five years ago. His actions triggered a revolution that ended with the downfall of President Zine Al Abidine Ben Ali and the end of decades of authoritarian rule. Tunisia's uprising inspired millions of people across the Middle East and North Africa to rise up, armed with a belief that change was possible. But five years on, many Tunisians wonder if it was all for nothing. Has the country that became a model for the Arab Spring, failed to deliver on the promise of real change? And what has the rest of the region learnt from Tunisia? Presenter: Folly Bah Thibault Guests: Rafik Abdessalem - Tu...
Khalil Melliti has always known his future would lead him into the heart of Tunisia's love of football. "I've been mad about football since I was little. Right now I play for the best team in Tunisia, Esperance." At 16 years old, Melliti's passion for and commitment to the sport was so evident, his family did not hesitate to uproot the family home to make his life a little easier. "It was tough to abandon our own house but there is nothing more important than my children," says Melliti's mum Aida. "Not cars or houses or money. First my children must grow and find their place, then everything will come naturally." In late 2010, people took to the streets of Tunis to protest poor living conditions and an increasingly clear culture of corruption. What is now referred to as the Tunisian ...
Desperate Tunisian migrants have staged a mutiny at a detention centre. Faced with imminent deportation from the Italian island of Lampedusa, they started a small fire and made a bid for freedom on Monday. Thousands fleeing political turmoil in Tunisia have made the crossing to Lampedusa this year. And they are determined not to go back. But some of the escapees were swiftly returned to the centre, to face repatriation, under a deal struck between Rome and the new, post-revolutionary authorities in Tunis. ... http://www.euronews.net/

Tunisia is often regarded as the success story of the Arab Spring. Last week the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet received the Nobel Peace Prize for “building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the Jasmine Revolution of 2011”. But with the recent attacks by ISIL, the government has had to declare a state of emergency and pass controversial “anti-terror” laws.

Whither Tunisia? The rise of an Islamist party to power in the North African country in the wake of the Arab Spring had many worried about the treatment of its small Jewish community. The return of an ancient pilgrimage on May 9th, 2012 after the cancelation the year before put some of those fears to rest, but certainly not all.

Tunisia is often viewed as the success story of the Arab Spring. Tunisians were the catalysts for the wave of revolutions that swept across the Middle East and North Africa. They were the first to oust their dictator, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. The transitional government produced a constitution that brought together secularists and Islamists. Tunisia is the first country in the Arab world to be classified as “free” by Freedom House, something that hasn’t happened in 40 years. In October, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet for “building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the Jasmine Revolution of 2011”. But the country’s transition from dictatorship to democracy hasn’t been easy. High unemployment among youth and slow economic gro...

International Symposium on the Arab Spring in Istanbul, Turkey | May 24, 2012 The events that swept across North Africa and the Middle East since January 2011 have transformed the political map of the region. Jointly termed the "Arab Spring," these popular uprisings have brought down some of the most entrenched and repressive authoritarian regimes of our times. Yet the political future of the Middle East is far from set. While some countries in the region are setting up transitional governments and devising constitutional frameworks for their first democratic elections, others are in the midst of violent protests and fierce repression. The political origins, dynamics, and implications of these momentous events was the focus of an international symposium held on May 24, 2012, in Turkey, whi...
