The Tunisian revolution of January 2011 suspended all the laws of the Ministry of Censorship that existed during the dictatorship of Ben Ali. Journalists then found themselves “freed from these laws and were able to interview whom they wanted and hold the debates they chose”, explains Larbi Chouikha, lecturer in Communication at the University of Manouba. “Journalists had to define a line of conduct because they were not trained to live and work in a truly democratic situation”, says Chouikha. She also explains that, after the revolution, two laws were created to preserve freedom of expression and the right to information, but the various interim governments had not applied them until a few weeks ago. “Now, if you go to Tunisia and switch on the television, all day long there are debates between the people in Parliament, in the opposition and representatives of civil society, and there are no forbidden subjects or censorship.” However, Chouikha admits that there is “some self-censorship” among professionals due to years of restrictions on information, which the application of these new laws will gradually eliminate.
