  1. Youth Employment and Migration in Tunisia

    12 August 2013

    Youth between 15 and 29 years of age represent 28.4 per cent of the 10.7 million population of Tunisia. It is widely recognized that this young generation has been the main driving-force behind the social and political upheaval that has led to the fall of Ben Ali’s government in January 2011. Today, their persistent discontent, in particular as regards labour market prospects, could weigh on the political and social transition of the country. Above all, youth employment remains a great challenge for Tunisia.
