2024 Tunisia Media Landscape Assessment

In recent times, Tunisia’s media landscape underwent substantial shifts, necessitating a reexamination of established understandings and narratives about the media ecosystem. Internews, having previously completed a Media Landscape Assessment (MLA) for Tunisia in July 2021, has identified an urgent need for a revisit. The backdrop of this renewed assessment is a series of considerable changes: the introduction of a more restrictive regulatory framework, heightened tensions between the media and the authorities, and a rapidly evolving social media landscape. These shifts have undoubtedly cast ripples across the dynamics of media freedom, access to information, freedom of expression and, generally, the health of the information ecosystem in Tunisia.
