Tunisian civil unrest, which was launched on December 17th and resulted in President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's leaving Tunisia on January 14th, led to the beginning of a new era across the Arab Middle East and North Africa, across Tunisia in particular. While 219 people, 74 of whom were in prison, were killed during the civil unrest; the revolution fire in Tunisia triggered new waves of insurrection against authoritarian and dictatorial regimes across the region in a short period of time. The civil unrest, which began as an individual action, resulted in Constituent Assembly elections on October 23rd by completing the leadership and organization process in a short time. Following the Constituent Assembly elections; many leaders, who had to carry on their political activities in exile or in prison during the Ben Ali regime, have entered in an active process on institutionalization of democratic process as new President, Prime Minister and Ministers of Tunisia. In this context, within this study, the revolutionary process in Tunisia will be analyzed by considering the historical and social background.
