MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Tunisia is listed in 26th position in the World Watch report 2021 by Open Doors for Christian persecution. The current President of Tunisia is Kais Saied and the Prime Minister is Najla Bouden Romdhane, the first woman Prime Minister of the country. Modern Tunisians are the descendants of indigenous Berbers and people from numerous civilizations that have invaded or migrated to Tunisia. The Arab Spring enabled the country to have one of the most progressive and open societies in the Arab world. Tunisians felt frustrated by high unemployment, corruption, political oppression, and poor living conditions. Protests led to government changes and inspired similar protests across the whole Arab world. Tunisia’s new constitution is truly progressive, and positive fruit came from the suffering of the Arab Spring. However, unemployment and economic decline remain big challenges to the new government.

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Cambodia is notorious for the Khmer Rouge and landmines. That was 40 years ago, though, and the nation has enjoyed relative peace since then. Even so, the news still reports on frequently hidden landmine explosions that leave people limbless. It is a poor nation, and corruption runs rampant. The sex industry thrives. One-third of Cambodians live on less than one dollar per day, yet it is still one of the region’s fastest-growing economies. Prime Minister Hun Sen has ruled the nation for 35 years, ruthlessly removing opposition. After 2018’s sham elections, the EU, USA, Australia, and Japan have all moved towards introducing sanctions of some kind. The small population of Christian Believers has also enjoyed relative peace, although mission work is scorned. Cambodia remains a non-militant Buddhist state.
