PS 370 Arab Uprisings
This course analyses the seminal events that unfolded in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) countries since December 2010, which transformed the political and social dynamics in many parts of the Arab world. Through lectures, readings, class discussions and documentaries, we will shed some light on the underlying causes of these events. Furthermore, we will ascertain the significance of the Arab uprisings and examine their impact on the regional and global power configuration.
