Continuing cause for concern

SEE THE #MomProject ABOUT TUNISIAN MEDIA INDEPENDENCE

Freedom of the press and information was the most important achievement of Tunisia’s “Jasmine Revolution” in 2011. Nonetheless, although the foundation has been laid to turn Tunisian media into free, independent and professional entities, there is continuing concern about the slow pace with which new media legislation is being drafted. RSF has noted with concern that the climate for the media and journalists has worsened since the election of a new president in October 2019.
