Capitalizing on Tunisia’s Transition: The Role of Broad-Based Reform

However, for this effort to succeed, a bottom-up approach must also be taken to address more urgent challenges such as youth unemployment, corruption, centralized governance, and public distrust. This will require instituting broad-based economic and political reforms that democratize market access, engage local actors, and meet the needs of all citizens, especially those marginalized in interior regions.

Why is Tunisia's Ennahda ditching political Islam? - AJE News

Over a three-day congress, the party's first since 2012, members discussed the question through heated but pluralist debates. Ennahda, a movement that emerged in the late 1970s as a national political party with an Islamic frame of reference, is now committing to separate the religious (al-da'awi ) from the political (al-siyasi). A vision that was upheld for more than three decades has ceded to a new brand of civic Islamism. That is, by analogy, a neo-Ennahda has not only edged closer to the notion of a civil state, but also to Turkey's ruling AK Party and further from Egypt's standard Muslim Brotherhood or "Ikhwani" model: The former operates politics with minimum ideology, the latter has historically harboured ambitions of Islamising polity.

Tunisia: gli islamisti sono la prima forza politica

ANALYSIS: In Tunisia, progress and uncertainty five years on. Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi and other law makers marked the country's revolution in 2015 (AFP) When Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was forced by a popular uprising to flee Tunisia and go into exile in Saudi Arabia five years ago, many of the biggest names in Tunisian politics today were in relative obscurity – some were in jail. In contrast to Egypt, Yemen, Libya and Syria, there's no denying that Tunisia has made progress since its 2011 uprising.

The country now has meaningful elections, a semi-functioning party system and a constitution born of debate and compromise between the elite political blocks. Tunisians may be the only Arab spring participants who can credibly claim to have carried out a revolution, but serious problems remain that threaten all of the tentative successes. Presidential power. Why Counterterrorism Could Be the Death of Tunisian Democracy. Shortly after an explosion killed a dozen security agents on one of their own buses in Tunis, the Tunisian capital, on November 24, security forces started attacking journalists drawn to the scene, calling them terrorists.

Within hours, pundits sympathetic to Tunisia’s old regime took to the airwaves to blame human rights lawyers and the freedoms that came with the revolution for the attack. Within a few days, the police violently raided more than 50 homes in a trendy middle-class neighborhood, arresting, interrogating and later releasing countless young men, according to a local resident and rights activist.

Tunisia: sabato 9 gennaio voto fiducia del nuovo governo. Des députés de Nidaa ne voteront pas la confiance au nouveau gouvernement. Tunisia: 30 deputati partito Nidaa Tounes lanciano ultimatum - Politica. Tunisia sees Islamist militants exploiting Libya chaos. By Patrick Markey and Tarek Amara TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia's Prime Minister Ali Larayedh said Islamist militants are exploiting anarchy in neighboring Libya to get training and smuggle weapons across North Africa's porous borders.

His coalition government is grappling with an Islamist militant group known as Ansar al-Sharia, which is one of the most radical to emerge since Tunisia's 2011 uprising against autocratic President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali Ben Ali. Security is a sensitive matter for Larayedh's ruling moderate Islamist party, Ennahda, which has agreed to step down in three weeks to end months of unrest set off by the assassination of two secular leaders by Islamist militants.

As well as Ansar al-Sharia, North Africa is home to al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and other Islamist militants such as those led by veteran commander Mokhtar Belmokhtar, who claimed responsibility for the attack on Algeria's Amenas gas plant in January, in which nearly 40 foreign workers were killed. Al-Qaïda reconnait avoir soutenu la révolution tunisienne et met en garde Ennahda (vidéo) Tunisians protest as political crisis deepens - Africa. Thousands of Tunisians have marched through their capital, calling for the government to resign as the nation's political crisis deepens. Saturday's march was the culmination of a week of protests organised by a coalition of opposition groups known as the National Salvation Front (NSF), calling for the resignation of the government and the dissolution of the assembly elected in 2011 to write the constitution. It attracted fewer people than two similar protests held earlier this month - 10,000, according to police estimates.

The assassination of an opposition politician in July, the second in six months, has sharply polarised the country and prompted a walkout by about 60 opposition assembly members. The powerful UGTT trade union, which has been mediating talks between the government and the NSF, on Saturday presented the government's latest proposals on resolving the crisis.
