The energy transition in Tunisia, which was first initiated in 2009 and reviewed in 2012, has underemphasized related social and political factors, such as employment and citizen participation in the country’s overall transition context. As the country continues on its path of democratization, the process of energy transition should underscore employment, enhance the role of local authorities and conducting energy-relevant surveys and opinion polls.
