In December of 2020, Tunisia will celebrate the first decade of the Jasmine Revolution, which was sparked on December 17, 2010, and ended on January 14, 2011 with the fall of the Ben Ali regime. And every year, Tunisians count the achievements and frustrations of what is considered the only success story of the region-wide Arab Spring. Some analysts and observers of national affairs consider that Tunisia was able to gradually consolidate its democratic transition through the peaceful transfer of power, free and fair elections, freedom of the press, and the guarantee of people's rights in a new constitution on par with those in established democracies. Others believe that Tunisia veered off the course of the revolution and its core demands of improving Tunisians’ daily lives - a goal that has proven elusive for successive governments since.
Today, on the tenth anniversary of the revolution, we therefore ask: #Zaama Tunisia is on the right track?
