Abstract (EN)Tunisia is frequently known as the small “noiseless country” of the MENA that achieved its political transition and successfully managed to avoid civil war and authoritarian consolidation. It is also traditionally presented as an exception in the Arab-Muslim world, for its legal and political system would be more secular than in other Arab countries. Based on an ongoing fieldwork, Choukri Hmed presents his paper which, without undermining these political outcomes, proposes an analysis of the (un)changing frames and issues in both social movements and the political field in the country since 2010.
