L’offre plurielle de sécurité dans le Grand Tunis: Quelles alternatives à l’État pour combler le « vide » sécuritaire?


The capacity of the Tunisian state to provide security to its citizens was deeply affected by the popular uprising in December 2010 and its aftermath. Since then, neither state nor non-state security providers have managed to fill the void left by the retreat of the hegemonic and repres- sive state security apparatus of the Zine El Abidine Ben Ali regime. Attempts at organising groups to protect citizens and their property after the fall of the regime in January 2011 remained short-lived, and Salafist initiatives to establish a parallel security order in certain neighbourhoods of Tunis have not succeeded. Throughout the political transformation since 2011, the state has regained the necessary social and political means to prevent the emergence of a more permanent parallel security structure. However, it has not been able to foster an inclusive model of security provision for all residents of Grand Tunis, in particular for those in poorer neighbourhoods.
