The aim of this paper is to contribute to the study of the causes of financial instability in Tunisia. The empirical research followed in this paper has a major purpose, which to assess the relationship of causality among a panel of explanatory variables and the financial instability. The model elaborated in the empirical investigation of this survey is based on estimating a time series covering the period 1990 – 2011, by taking the Tunisian case for example. The results show that financial instability in Tunisia is related with the weak institutional quality from analyzing the coefficients of the explanatory variables: government effectiveness and the government regulation. Given this conclusion, we raise more the added gains for macroeconomic and financial stability and to avoid financial crisis that could occur if this country switches openly to strength governance.
