This study examines the impact of street politics on the post 2011 democratization process in Tunisia and Egypt. It makes use of demonstrations and conflict maps to identify the factors that led the political forces in post-revolutionary Egypt and Tunisia to resort to street politics and demonstrations as a pressure tool to achieve their goals. The paper examines the motivations behind these demonstrations and their outcomes. The political violence in both cases and its impact on the transition are compared in order to understand the intensity of the political conflict and its descent into violence. The study monitors the most important sources of conflict between political forces in the Tunisian and Egyptian cases, and determines the factors that influenced the transition experience, successfully or otherwise.
