This report outlines the preliminary findings from our survey of young people in the Tunis suburbs of Douar Hicher and Ettadhamen – two neighbourhoods marked by high unemployment rates, school drop-outs and insecurity. Our quantitative survey looked at educational and economic status, the relationship between young people and state institutions, and attitudes towards politics and religion. The statistical data presented in this survey shows that young people from these neighbourhoods suffer from negative stereotypes and endure a stigma of embodying violence and crime.
