North Africa Quarterly Analytical - New Libya, New Neighbourhood - What Opportunities for Tunisia?


The Libyan conflict, that raged for close to ten months and led to the fall of Gaddafi, particularly hurt the Tunisian economy, especially in the first half of 2011. In a review of the period concerned, the African Development Bank (AfDB) (Santi, Ben Romdhane and Ben Aissa, 2011) estimated that despite a few positive externalities, the Libyan crisis negatively affected the Tunisian economy which was still reeling from the socio-economic impact of its 14 January 2011 Revolution.
