OLLI: Tahrir Square and Beyond: Whatever Happened to the Arab Spring?
Start Date: 3/20/2014Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 3/20/2014End Time: 3:00 PM

Event Description
In the winter of 2011 a wave of popular protests galvanized the Arab world, toppling tyrants and threatening others. With a feeling of euphoria, people began labeling it the “Arab Spring”. Three years later, the outcome of these “revolutions” is much less clear. Political instability, civil war, and military rule seem to be the result. Egypt, the most populous Arab country and one of the cultural capitals of the Arab world has been most promising and most disappointing. We will remember the causes for the 2011 upheaval, trace the development of the institutions, constitutions and political parties and assess the prospects for stability and democratic transformation.
