    Tunisia is the second-best-performing country in the Index for criminality, ranking 53rd overall, and with the lowest overall criminality score in North Africa.

    Unlike the majority of African countries, Tunisia’s criminal markets score is higher than its criminal actors score. The country’s score for human smuggling is above the continental average, but the majority of criminal markets are far less pervasive in Tunisia than elsewhere in Africa. Human smuggling is prominent, with the country acting both as an origin and transit country for migrants being smuggled across the Mediterranean to Europe. However, levels of violence and exploitation surrounding human smuggling in Tunisia are far lower than in numerous countries in Africa. State-embedded actors exert the greatest degree of influence on organised crime in Tunisia, scoring 5. Other criminal actor typologies have little to no influence. Tunisia is fairly resilient to organised crime, ranking 12th overall for resilience, second only to Morocco in North Africa. Government leadership in addressing organised crime and relatively high levels of transparency and accountability, in addition to a robust legislative framework and a vocal and vibrant civil society, contribute to high levels of resilience. However, organised crime prevention measures are very weak. There is significant scope for improvement in enhancing the capacity of the judicial system and law enforcement agencies.
