The rights of Sub-Saharan migrants in Tunisia

The precarious status of migrants labours in Tunisia is visible. Sub-Saharan migrants are over-represented in low paid service jobs such as assistant waiters, bathroom cleaners, or street and public space cleaners. Of the 53,000 foreigners that live in Tunisia, 12,000 are from sub-Saharan Africa[1]. Yet institutionally, these migrants are nowhere.

The challenges and the necessary reforms for education in Tunisia

Since independence, Tunisia has had periods of different educational policies. Faced with high rates of illiteracy, education initially focused on content. This was later replaced with an objective-based approach, and when this proved to be a failure, it was replaced by a skills-based approach. Educational innovations may have continued throughout the world, but they have ceased in Tunisia. Tunisia has not benefited from this research and has persisted with old methods for more than two decades which has caused a reduction in school success rate. This Policy Brief discusses these failures and proposes solutions to address the shortcomings of the current system.
