Tunisian youth: Demands for dignity in the context of challenging socio-political and economic upheaval
This article is featured in the ORIENT I 2021
Tunisian youths form a significant constituent of the Tunisian society. They represent Tunisia’s ultimate chance for progress. However, ten years after the revolution, the Tunisian youth have been pushed even further into the margins of society and towards idleness, catalysing a culture of resentment and apathy. Political infighting and corruption have undermined the youth’s role as the torchbearers of progress. This article analyses the Tunisian youth constituency and reflects on the Arab Spring’s impact on youths in the context of political and socio-cultural change.
