Tunisia remains a country of contrasts: while important progress has been made on political transition toward an open, democratic system of governance—uniquely in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region—economic transition has not kept pace. Youth and women have been particularly affected by this: Tunisia is one of the few countries in the world where a higher level of education decreases employability, particularly for women. Youth and women in inland areas of Tunisia are affected the most, and the resulting outward migration of youth poses a threat to Tunisia’s long-term prospects of economic competitiveness (World Bank, 2019).
