In spite of its existence since the development of the transitional justice in Tunisia; an increasing attention has been built up in the country as well as on the international level during the past three years regarding a new form of economic reconciliation in Tunisia due to a proposed initiative by the presidency and its anticipated effects on the community and on the outcomes of the transitional justice. This up-growing attention was the result of different parties within the Tunisian community that have initiated a strong opposition movement regarding this newly developed proposition. This movement is comprised of various efforts and approaches aiming at, mainly, rejecting an initiative that is considered to promote impunity. Consequently, the efforts were translated into a wide national movement that reflected the high sense of cooperation between different actors regardless of their diverse backgrounds. Though Tunisia has been considered as a promising example for adopting different anti-corruption policies after the Revolution, the current situation indicates that such policies were neither enough nor serious to essentially serve the goals of transitional justice. Therefore, obviously another approach has to be adopted in order to serve and achieve the goals of both the Revolution and transitional justice.
