Abstract

This contribution analyzes the post-revolutionary path of Tunisia by placing it within the historical process that led to the building of the contemporary nation-state. Social, economic and political elements are taken into account in shaping the history of the country since the French colonization to nowadays. Moreover, in the second part of this essay, the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic is used as magnifying glass to analyze current challenges and internal politics. The society’s response and the government policies implemented to counter the contagion show fragilities and socio-economic inequalities within the country. Finally, the chapter dwells on the weight of the social conflict in the current socio-political context of Tunisia.
