Arab Democratic Uprisings: Domestic, Regional and Global Implications

Abdennour Benantar
Published Online: 2011-04-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1940-0004.1138

The 2011 Arab uprisings so far represent a mixed bag. Only those in Tunisia and Egypt have succeeded, while those elsewhere are in the process of being put down by force. Even in the two successful cases, the regimes themselves have remained in place, despite the departure of those in power at the very top. Nevertheless, the sheer courage and willpower of these uprisings on the part of the Arab people will have far reaching effects for a long time to come, particularly on their countries’ relations with the West.

Keywords: Arab uprisings; Middle East; Egypt; Tunisia; Libya; Yemen; Bahrain; Syria; democratization; regime change; Palestinians
