Revolution & Civil Conflict

This roundtable examines the revolutionary history of the Middle East, with a particular focus on the Arab uprisings of 2010-2011 and the political conflict in the region since 2011. We examine the history of regime and government transitions in the Middle East, contemporary patterns of popular protest, and state responses to mass protest. In addition, we assess the sources of civil conflict and political violence, as well as the potential for state failure in parts of the Middle East. We will focus on the policy implications of a politically mobilized Middle East, as well as examine the possibility for a constructive foreign policy to reduce political violence and address widespread human rights abuses.
