Bayle, Emmanuel | Zaoui, Maha

This paper examines the relationship between sport and the Tunisian state, focusing on the issues of governance and regulation. Identified are three periods: from independence to the coup d'état (20 March 1956–7 November 1987), where sport was a component of national identity; Ben Ali's regime taking control of the Olympic Movement, 1987–2011; and Post-2011, which witnessed attempts to achieve democracy.
