From Baksheesh to Bribery

At the forefront of the “Jasmine Revolution” in 2011, Tunisia ousted an autocrat and expressly provided for the prevention of corruption in its new constitution. While its stated commitment to anti-corruption in the aftermath of the Arab Spring is laudatory, Tunisia is still inching incrementally toward laws and policies that uphold transparency and accountability. This chapter examines Tunisia’s legal and regulatory anti-corruption regime, including but not limited to criminal and civil codes and treaty obligations, under its new constitution. It concludes that while Article 10 of the Tunisian Constitution and the legal reforms that have followed are a strong declaration of intent to change course, “[h]istory will judge if they fulfill their promise.”
