The Tunisian diaspora refers to people of Tunisian origin living outside that country. It is the direct result of the strong rate of emigration which Tunisia has experienced since its independence in 1956. In the 1960s and 70s, the favourable economic situation in France increased the phenomenon. The beginning of the 1980s saw the clear development of a Tunisian community in that country as a result of the large number of people (more than 22,000).
