In the aftermath of the revolution, Tunisia has faced significant security challenges related to the tense relationship between the security institution and the citizenry, exacerbated by the emergence of terrorist cells.

Although it can be intuited that the public’s sense of insecurity is increasing, there has not been any attempt to measure this trend. The level of trust the public exhibits toward the Security Institutions has similarly remained unquantified.
