Abstract

Tunisians, and the wider world, expected a great deal after the dawn of democracy in 2011. This followed the popular uprisings that ended President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s dictatorial rule.

But even two years after those momentous events, many were beginning to doubt both the new government and the democracy it claimed to embody.

Those doubts have deepened.
