Timeline: Tunisia and Transitional Justice



With the conclusion of the mandate of the Truth and Dignity Commission (TDC), ICTJ looks back on the major events in Tunisia stemming from the Arab Spring that led to the TDC's creation, which involved the participation of a broad spectrum of people representing the country's multifaith, politically divided, and economically stratified society. At this pivotal moment—a turning point that will likely determine whether Tunisia steps forward or backward in its effort to acknowledge and provide redress for a wide range of human rights abuses—ICTJ recognizes all the victims who gave their testimony, private and public, in an effort to further the TDC's mandate to document violations and pursue truth and justice. ICTJ will continue to memorialize and foster dialogue and raise awareness about women's experiences of repression through Voices of Memory, an interactive exhibition inspired by a group of nine Tunisian women and the first collective testimonial of Tunisian women who experienced the impact of repression under the Ben Ali regime.
