Tunisia Economic Network

Tunisia is the only Arab country which successfully graduated from the Arab Spring to a constitutional rule, though it is  currently facing challenges since the elected President Saied first suspended then dissolved the Parliament in July 2021. As much as Tunisia is now in a political impasse, it badly needs the emergence of sound economic ideas. There is a lack of appreciation in the intelligentsia on how a limited government (smaller government, exiting of government from business, easier regulations etc..) can reduce the problem of pervasive corruption in a society.

One of the most important milestones of this Islam & Liberty project in partnership with Atlas Network is to  produce a policy paper explaining the status quo and providing a list of recommendations, reforms, and redefinition of the role of government in business and economy.

Our paper is now available in both Arabic and English :

The 2nd ILN Tunisia Conference entitled “Bringing Citizens Back To Power In Tunisia 🇹🇳” took place in Tunis on March 18th, 2022.

Our objective was to discuss the current crisis in Tunisia and welcome questions from non-Tunisians who are interested in learning more about what is happening in the country which started the Arab Spring since the “Presidential Coup” of 25th July 2021.
There was a number of Tunisian speakers, mainly politicians and civil society activists, as well as international ones (agenda below), a foreign online audience and a limited in person attendance.
