January 14 marked the fifth anniversary of the momentous Tunisian Revolution and with this milestone, POMEPS is reflecting on the changes in the region over the past half decade. Laryssa Chomiak began this conversation by challenging the assumption that political frustrations and conflict in Tunisia detract from the advances of the revolution. Stay tuned for more analysis from POMEPS scholars in the weeks to come.
