Tunisia significantly strengthened its human rights protections following the 2014 adoption of a new constitution, three years after the uprising that toppled President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali. Important reforms include the adoption of new laws to combat torture and the establishment of a truth commission into past rights abuses, but a new security law raises human rights concerns. The government will need to thoroughly overhaul existing laws, reform public institutions, and implement constitutional guarantees to address deficiencies in how it protects human rights. The lenient sentences imposed on those responsible for killings of protesters during Tunisia’s uprising have raised doubts about the authorities’ commitments to accountability.
