Salas Danies, Angie Carolina
The outbreak of the “Jasmine Revolution” in Tunisia, called into question the “success” of a country that for more than two decades was praised by the World Bank andInternational Monetary Fund, for its achievements as a result of a comprehensive structural adjustment program. However, the demands and requirements of the demonstrators, showed that the country suffered of several structural problems, related to high levels of unemployment, and inequity. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the role of the reforms and development model followed by Tunisia accompanied by the WB and the IMF, in the emergence and consolidation of the factors that led to the outbreak of the Jasmine Revolution.
