McCarthy, Rory (2021) 'Hizb al-Tahrir Tunisia.', in Encyclopaedia of Islam (3rd ed.). Leiden: Brill.
Ḥizb al-Taḥrīr Tunisia is an Islamist group which emerged in the late 1970s as a branch of the international Ḥizb al-Taḥrīr movement, which had been established in Jerusalem in 1952 by the Palestinian Islamic scholar Taqi al-Dīn al-Nabhānī (1909-77). The group critiqued the Tunisian state as a colonial implant, and advocated the installation of an Islamic state. It was repressed during the 1980s, and remained largely underground until a popular uprising toppled the authoritarian regime of Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali in January 2011. The party was legalized in July 2012, and continued to campaign for an Islamic state.
