This paper will examine the expression of national identity in accordance with the social and political conflicts that are now distinguishing Tunisia. Research issues that will be addressed include incidents that lead to the Jasmine Revolution and its outcome, as well as Tunisian national identity and how it is articulated and expressed by segments of the Tunisian population. This paper clarifies and applies selected theories of Anthony Giddens, Anthony D. Smith, Richard Jenkins, Ernest Gellner and Franz Fanon onto empirical material accumulated directly in Tunisia, thus analyzing a local perspective of the situation with external theories. This paper utilizes the empirical-inductive method in the process of reaching a conclusion. The examination concludes that there subsists a fragmentation in the national identity of the Tunisian people, which is related to the circumstances and aftermath of the Jasmine Revolution.
