|Report||In February 2015 I went to Tunis to conduct expert interviews with specialist on urban development and urban policy in Tunisia. The expert interviews were necessary to better embed my own Morocco-based research topic in the whole regional framework that has heavily changed after 2011. Fortunately, due to the help of several colleagues, I was able to meet with leading representatives of the GIZ Tunis, the Tunisian City Association (FNVT) and the Association of Tunisian City Planners (ATU) as well as with founders of bottom-up initiatives dealing with urban issues. Thanks to that I have got an improved understanding of the impact of the Arab Spring on urban development in North Africa.|
