Guide book: The Rough Guide is excellent, as always, the Lonely Planet is ubiquitous. Both played a prominent role in ancient times, first with the famous Phoenician city of Carthage, and later, as the Africa Province, which became known as the bread basket of the Roman Empire. The causes of graduate unemployment in Tunisia are complex, and both demand and supply factors are at play. An exception may be in Tripolitania, where a form of Neo-Punic was inscribed in Latin script perhaps as late as the 4th century.

I am looking at either end of March or very early April demanding on contracts on house sale. The Raqqada Museum, housed in a former presidential palace near Kairouan, has the country's largest collection of Islamic art, including manuscripts of the Quran ( Koran ) from the Great Mosque of Kairouan. Some Numidian bishops objected to the choice of Caecilian as the new bishop of Carthage, alleging that his ordination had been performed by a bishop who had weakened during Diocletian’s persecution of the church and hence was invalid.

Major oil & gas companies from across the globe participate in this annual event to meet imports from Africa and explore new business opportunities. But gay people from the regions I’m writing about, who read those same articles, write from across the world to thank me for calling attention to the misery they face under religious rule. The University of Tunis has a medical school. By late June, >600 refugees were living in the southern Tunisian towns of Ben Gardane and Medenine.

Port El Kantaoui was specifically built for tourists and while Sousse might have been formed quite naturally, this is an area which is artificial in every way possible. Given the threat of terrorism and kidnapping, exercise increased caution, including near tourist facilities and particularly in the Greater South (in all areas south of and including the towns of Douz, Matmata, Médenine, Nefta and Zarzis), in border areas with Algeria and Libya, the Mount Chaambi National Park and the Jendouba, Kasserine and Kef governorates (see Regional Advisory).

Full of high art and monuments, almost every small village in Italy offers a few interesting locations. The hashtags on Twitter tell the tale of how the uprising went from being local to national in scope: #bouazizi became #sidibouzid, then #tunisia. However, rumored to be equally liked by the President and First Lady, Ben Dhia could act as a placeholder while a younger family member, such as one of Ben Ali's son-in-laws, gained political power.

A similar law that encouraged investment in industries producing for local markets was enacted in 1974 and amended in 1981; the statute required that such firms exhibit partial (in many cases majority) Tunisian ownership. Outmanoeuvre your enemy and crush the Allied invasion of the continent. Southern regions are generally hotter, with temperatures reaching 45°C. Following the advice of someone I met on the airplane, I went out to the main door on the upper level of the airport, not the departure gate, and got a taxi that was there delivering someone.

There is nowhere on earth quite like the Sahara. The Tunisian Air Force has 154 aircraft and 4 UAVs. Changes in educational and employment patterns have made the companionate marriage between equals more common. Additional kingdoms developed across the continent, including those in Benin and Mali.

Furthermore, wild olive and carob have been widely domesticated to produce olive oil and food/fodder, respectively. Its history, however, is one of occupation – by the Phoenicians, the Romans, Byzantine, Arab, and Ottoman empires, and then by the French in 1883. The beauty of the water sources and palm trees in opposition to the dry and rocky place all over is a really breathtaking scenario. Watch out for pickpockets in public places and tourist areas.

The British 8th army began to push the Axis forces westward through Egypt and Libya into Tunisia. The waters around the Tunisian coast are teaming with fish and many people come to Tunisia for fishing holidays and may charter boats to go game fishing. Daughters, for example, inherit only half as much as sons and widows without children may receive nothing. [24] Contrary to Sharia law, however, Tunisian law states that if a father has no sons, the inheritance passes to his daughter(s) rather than to his own family. [25] In addition, following a court ruling in 2009, it is now possible for non-Muslim women to inherit from their Muslim husbands. [26] In rural areas in particular, however, women often renounce their inheritance in favour of male relatives, in order to keep property and land within the family. [27] Some parents get around inheritance laws by gifting property or assets to daughters before they die; this practice is facilitated by tax exemptions granted on gifts made between parents and their children. [28] Polygamy has been illegal in Tunisia since 1956. [29] That said, many Muslim men feel that they are entitled to multiple wives if they have the finances to support them, and unofficial second wives or mistresses maintained in a second household are not unheard of. [30] Repudiation is illegal, and women and men have the same divorce rights in Tunisia, meaning that a divorce can be granted at the request of either spouse. [31] Women who have been the victims of assault or battery at the hands of their husbands may also file for divorce on the grounds of the injury suffered. [32] Tunisian law requires divorces to be registered with a civil authority, and all divorces take place before a judge. [33] The adolescent fertility rate is 6 births per 1,000 girls age 15-19.

[35] In addition, the amendment treats marital relationships as an aggravating circumstance warranting a harsher penalty. [36] However, the law also provides that “withdrawal of the complaint by a victim who is an ascendant or spouse shall terminate any proceedings, trial or enforcement of penalty,” [37] the rational being “to leave the door open for sound family reconciliation rather than closing it by seeking at all costs to punish the spouse (…)”. [38] The definition of domestic violence is also considered too narrow as it is not clear to what extent psychological violence is covered by the provisions of the Penal Code. [39] Generally, domestic violence is viewed as a private issue and the police typically refuse to intervene, often because they lack the training or resources to carry out investigations or protect victims effectively. [40] In addition, 30.3% of women questioned in the 2011-2012 MICS4 survey agreed that wife beating is justified in at least one of the proposed circumstances, indicating that societal acceptance of domestic violence remains prevalent. [41] Women’s rights organisations provide some support to victims, including in a crisis centre and a shelter. [42] The first government-run domestic violence shelter and hotline opened in late 2012. [43] According to a 2010 survey, 10% of Tunisian women have experienced some form of physical and sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. [44] Rape is illegal under the Tunisian penal code, including spousal rape (Arts 227 and 227bis). [45] Very few cases, however, are prosecuted and Article 227 states that in the case of a statutory rape involving a minor female (between the age of 13 and 19), legal proceedings against the perpetrator may be dropped if the victim agrees to marry him. [46] Although marriages by law require the consent of both parties, girls may face familial and social pressure to marry the perpetrator in order to protect the honour of the family. [47] The Penal Code (Art 226-ter) was amended in 2004 to include sexual harassment as a criminal offence, carrying a penalty of one year in prison and fines. [48] The law does not specifically address sexual harassment in employment and has been critiqued as overly vague and susceptible to abuse. [49] Although sexual harassment is reportedly a problem, there is no data on prevalence.
