PSC 154E: Arab Revolutions

In 2011, a massive wave of protest against dictatorship swept the Arab world. The outcomes ranged from fragile democratic transition to civil war to retrenchment of the previous regime. This course will examine the causes, events and outcomes of this phenomenon collectively known as “Arab Spring” in multiple countries. These events continue to reverberate in regional politics and offer a unique window into the challenges of large-scale political change in the Arab world and beyond.
