Summary The evolutionary processes of the so called‘arab spring’ and its associatedpolitical transformations have been andstill remain highly unpredictable and almostimpossible to systematically account for.this paper explores the conditions thatallowed tunisia, the birth place of the ‘arabspring,’ to achieve successful democratisingoutcomes in comparison to its neighboursacross the middle east and north africa(mena) region. the paper will also offer someanalysis of future scenarios for sociopoliticaldevelopments based on currentcontext and projected outlook. this paperargues that one of the key ingredients thatallowed a relatively peaceful ‘politicaltransition’ in tunisia is the constructiveapproach to consensus politics adopted bythe key political actors including the islamistparty ennahda. consensus politics createdwhat can be termed an ‘authentic tunisian approach,’ a combination of political pragmatism,acceptance of power-sharing and a progressivesocial positioning in key national debates.
