Continuing cause for concern

SEE THE #MomProject ABOUT TUNISIAN MEDIA INDEPENDENCE

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 

significantly. Hate speech is directed against the Independent High Authority for Broadcast Communication (HAICA) by far-right parliamentarians, while violence against journalists and media outlets is increasing.
