After dictator Ben Ali was ousted, Tunisia is the only country arisen from the Arab Spring with a secular constitution and, since 2014, an elected parliament and a president. However, the initial euphoria has given way to realism: while the revolution has brought democracy, it has hardly improved the economic situation. The country is only just starting a long process and is faced with common problems of young democratic systems: although the coalition of national unity that emerged from a fragmented parliament increases the legitimacy of the government, it is delaying urgently needed reforms. Germany has been supporting the ongoing transformation process since 2011 within the scope of Financial Cooperation (FC), particularly in the areas of sustainable economic development, water, energy and decentralisation. Tunisia has been a reform partner country of the German Federal Government since 2017 and since then two reform partnerships have been formed to support the Tunisian financial and banking sector and to modernise public administration.
