The New Tunisian Legislative Framework is an analysis of the two recent major laws aimed at regulating the media in Tunisia. This is a follow-up to an earlier Internews study, Political and Media Transitions in Tunisia, which looked at media policy and regulatory environment in Tunisia up to August 2011. Both studies are part of Internews Network’s Middle East and North Africa Media Policy Initiative.
