Social Movements in the Aftermath of the Arab Uprisings From Marginalization to Participation?

2018

This project will be conducted in two Arab states: Egypt and Jordan. The first a republic, witnessed mass uprisings in 2011 with a resultant regime breakdown and the downfall of the longstanding Mubarak.  After these events, social movements have not seized to exist, on the contrary they have flourished and increased in number and scope. The second, a monarchy, has witnessed widespread demonstrations with no regime breakdown.  The number and scope of social movements therein has also increased since the 2011 events. 

To have a clearer understanding of the similarities and differences between social movements in different Arab regime contexts, this project will collect and analyze data on the emergence of social movements in the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, in addition to mapping already existing movements who have been functioning in the public sphere prior to the uprisings.
