Assessment and recommendations

While the road travelled by Tunisia since the revolution has been bumpy and will in all likelihood continue to be so in years to come, much has been achieved since January 2011. Two rounds of democratic elections have been successfully held in October 2011and in October 2014. In 2014, Tunisia achieved another landmark by passing a new constitution, which has set the course for the countrys future. The enactment of the 2011 Law on Associations has fuelled a mushrooming of non-governmental organisations and think tanks, while the Law on Access to Information represents a significant step in the direction of increased transparency.
