The start of this year saw a wave of protests in Tunisia. Austerity measures and tax increases came into effect recently, while high inflation and unemployment still prevail. The job market is particularly bad in the south of the country. Our reporters have been to meet university graduates in the southern region of Gafsa. They say they have no prospects, while local authorities insist the situation is improving.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Wassim Cornet and Claire Pryde.
