Since the middle of last year, uncertainty has been increased in the country that represented the democratic hope in the Arab world born of the 2011 revolutions. In July 2021, President Kais Said suspended parliament and the young Tunisian democracy began to turn towards a presidential regime with authoritarian overtones. All this, in a context marked by an economic crisis – weighed down even more by the effects of the pandemic -, the political disaffection of citizens and the weakening of the previously majority Ennahda party.

Two of the afkar/ideas collaborators who know Tunisia best participate in this debate on the occasion of the presentation of the 64th issue of the magazine.
