    The debate about the theoretical foundations of the nature of the relationship between inflation and unemployment has been the subject matter of multiple reinterpretations involving most of the modern macroeconomic theories. The lack of research that proved the existence of the Phillips curve in the developing countries accounts for the objective of this study. In fact, our paper examines Tunisia as a case study to empirically prove the relation between inflation rate and unemployment rate. Our findings provide evidence about the existence of a long run trade-off between the unemployment rate and the inflation rate in Tunisia.
