During the last twenty years or so Tunisia, which achieved independence in 1956, has seen the appearance of the first generation of retired people. Here is a new social category with its specific characteristics and needs, unlike the group of those over 60 who did not have a right to a retirement pension. Amongst this new category of older people there are some who have chosen to return to work. From fact-finding interviews with such individuals, we have identified various reasons which have influenced their decision. If some mention the background of traditional society, others rather put their decision in terms of the modern way of life. In this way they reflect contemporary social change in Tunisia.
