Description

With civil resistance at the heart of the massive demonstrations, the early days of the Arab Spring produced some notable victories: popular movements helped to bring about the fall of authoritarian governments in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen. Yet these apparent triumphs of non-violent action were followed by disasters—wars in Syria, anarchy in Libya and Yemen, and reversion to authoritarian rule in Egypt.

What went wrong? Was the problem the methods, leadership, and aims of the popular movements, or the conditions of their societies?

Adam Roberts will be in conversation with Rashid Khalidi

Adam Roberts is senior research fellow in international relations, University of Oxford, and emeritus fellow of Balliol College, Oxford. He has written on many aspects of international relations, including on civil resistance against authoritarian regimes, and on foreign military occupations in the Middle East. He served as president of the British Academy, 2009-13. Roberts was Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at Oxford University, 1986-2007. He is one of the editors of Civil Resistance in the Arab Spring.

Rashid Khalidi is a historian of the Middle East, the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University, and director of the Middle East Institute of Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs.
