A Region in Revolt
3 February at 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Jade Saab is the editor of the recently published A Region in Revolt. The book looks at the wave of mass protest movements has spread across North Africa and West Asia, including Sudan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon and Iran. The mass protests have much in common, from opposing authoritarian regimes and worsening economic situations to demanding radical changes in social relations. Despite their similarities, each protest movement operates under different conditions that cannot be ignored. The specific historic, political and economic contexts of each country have determined who the key actors of the uprisings are and their location across old and new divides. Jade will present an overview of the book and look in more depth at the struggle in Lebanon.
