Tunisia is not a place of safety


In February 2023, after two years of an overall degradation of the political and socio-economic situations in Tunisia, the Tunisian president, Kaïs Saïed, made a statement incriminating sub-Saharan Africans. His speech amplified existing racist sentiments among a certain part of the population and triggered an increase in discrimination, violent attacks and collective expulsions. Following these events, the situation has been deteriorating for Black African foreigners in Tunisia.
