Tunisia, October 2011 : 10 months after the Revolution, the first free Tunisian elections brought to power an Islamist party with a low international public profile: Ennahdha.
At the time, the party was keen to project the image of a new, pluralistic and democratic Islamism. But 2 years on, the failure to deliver on major reforms or to continue the momentum of the Revolution is palpable.
Ennahdha encapsulates the passions and contradictions of post-revolutionary Tunisia, the last country to still defend the ideals of the Arab Spring. By plunging into the heart of its still-little-known history, and by following its current major figures, we discover the issues of political Islam in Tunisia and far beyond, in the Arab world.
