Economic analysis of the impact of violent extremism in Tunisia

This study measures the economic cost and impact of violent extremism in Tunisia by looking at (i) the human and material toll of violent incidents, (ii) the opportunity costs caused by the increase of security-related spending, (iii) the fall in tourism revenues, and (iv) the deterioration of the business environment. Findings aim at informing evidence-based budget planning for national policies and strategies, with an enhanced balance between PVE and Counter-Terrorism interventions.
