Reform, Revolution or Status Quo? Regional Dynamics in a Changing Arab World (hosted at USIP)

Some experts predicted that the “Arab Spring” rebellions would widen the strategic, political, and even ideological gap between Arab states undergoing dramatic change and those defending the status quo.  In fact, no such clear breach has occurred. Instead, Dawisha argues that sectarian tensions and economic constraints have dampened the potentially “incendiary” effect of the Arab political revolts. Please join us at USIP for an engaging discussion on these dynamics in the Middle East with Dawisha, the State Department’s Dafna Rand, and USIP’s Daniel Brumberg.
