A north African country bordering Algeria and Libya, Tunisia stretches from the Sahara desert in the south to the Mediterranean coastal plain in the north. A former French protectorate, the post independence period saw two successive autocratic Dictators, Bourguiba and Ben Ali, the second of whom left power in 2011 as a result of a popular revolution against his rule. Though free and fair elections followed, concerns about the new political climate remain as do issues with gender discrimination and provision of services to isolated or disadvantaged areas.
