Abstract
 is article deals with the increasing connections among the Tunisian diaspora and its homeland pro- vided by a widespread use o the social Web. e main aim is to evaluate to what extent the Tunisiandiaspora has contributed to a wider difusion o cyberactivism concerning legitimate claims or demo-cracy and human rights, considered as one o the main driving orces behind the 2011 revolution. Aterintroducing some epistemological and methodological issues related to the study o the Web, the paperdeepens the history o Tunisian migrants’ online activism in order to grasp connections with the laterconguration o the cyberdissidence in the homeland. e last section is dedicated to interpretation o the graphs, in order to compare the research hypothesises with the results stemming rom the e-Diasporaproject methodology.
