A necessary re-reading of the “Arab Spring”

September 10th, 2012

By: Dr. Barah Mikaïl

There is reason to rejoice the uprisings initiated by the Arab world in 2011. But, their consequences and developments are studied less and less. The satisfaction of the expulsion of dictators and authoritarian leaders in favor of a more open barah mikail A necessary re reading of the Arab Springpolitical situation is legitimate. But, this is not a reason to see in the sudden upheaval of national and regional political scenes a movement to encourage without planning.

In the case of the Arab world in particular, the recovery policy remains in progress, and with it, the development of analyses and perceptions that often miss what we should really understand.

This book looks to highlight that the saving nature of the Arab uprisings doesn’t negate the presence of counter-forces and actors just as interested in an opportunistic recovery of events by bringing certain realities and objective facts to light.
