TUNISIA: Government Announces Social Reform Amid Protests

On 13 January, the Tunisian government announced its development of a new set of social reforms in response to the protests that began on 8 January. Citizens have been protesting the new 2018 budget, which increases taxes and does little to improve lower-class conditions and the ongoing economic crisis the country has faced since the Arab Spring in 2011.
