Summary of Digital Revolutions in Tunisia:
This research paper is based on the digital revolutions in the Arab World of 2011. The Arab Spring is a revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests started from Tunisia in December 2010 and covered the whole Arab World from Middle East to the Northern Africa.In this study,I will be analyzing the causes and effects that initiated the Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia, which ended the twenty three years regime of President Ben Ali,after massive gatherings and protests by the public.Its political impact resulted in a series of uprisings all over the Arab World and led to many chronicle changes.
The ethnic and nationalism sensitivity is quite obvious and dominating in the Arab World.The Arab World is divided between the hard masses of Middle East in Asia and the Northern Africa,separated by the Red Sea. However the situation is relatively different due to the strong ethnic and nationalism superiority consciousness,the Arabs emerged as one world with common language,customs,cultures and traditions. The revolutionary force which initiated form Tunisia in December 2010 covered the Arab World from the Western Sahara to Bahrain.In my research paper,I will be focusing on the case study of ‘2010’s Jasmine revolution in Tunisia’.
My research question is,
What are the causes and effects behind the Jasmine revolution of Tunisia? And what is its
impact in the current scenario?
Tunisia acted as the initiating force in the Arab Spring; it was suffering from continuous authoritarian regimes, since its independence in 1956. Habib Bourguiba was the first president,who ruled for thirty one years and Zine-El-Abidine Ben Ali ruled for twenty three years, their regimes were highly influenced with nepotism, secularism and kleptocracy,which suppressed the people for decades.The movement of Arab Spring or the politics of freedom was led by the technological advanced youth of the Arab World. Through blogs, messages,Facebook,YouTube and twitter, the whole region was connected with each other to face the ever green authoritarian regimes in their respective countries.Under the dictatorial rulers,the Arab countries were suffering from inflation, less employment opportunities,corruption, poor living conditions and lack of political freedom.
