Tunisia lies between Libya and Algeria and has a Mediterranean coastline along its north and east. It gained independence from France in 1956.

Tunisia is a North African nation with just under 12 million people. Its capital is Tunis. After French rule, leader Habib Bourguiba promoted a secular government and advanced women's rights. In 2011, its own popular protests against corruption sparked the Arab Spring movement. This is a collection of DW's latest content on Tunisia.
