Continuing cause for concern
Freedom of the press and the freedom to inform are the most important achievements of Tunisia’s 2011 revolution. But these freedoms have become more of a political issue since the 2019 general elections. Far-right politicians no longer hesitate to openly target journalists and press freedom defenders, and the overall climate for the media and journalists has worsened
