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...
'The essence of Jasmines’ (روح الياسمين) focuses on the ruination of Tunis suburbs. The singular title suggests not only the embracing exotic smell of the flowers, typical of the North African country, but the label Tunisian people were given after the Arab Spring (also known as the Jasmine Revolution). The film footage presents the ruination people are experiencing everyday in City El Fehri, one of the suburban area of the North African capital city, after the uprising in 2010 and shows the effects the revolution had on their everyday life. ‘The essence of Jasmines' aims to present and bring to light the deep soul of the Tunisian people; a side of Tunisia that is far different from the palm tree oasis advertised in magazines.

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...
