Sponsored by the Arab Studies Institute (ASI) and George Mason University's Middle East Studies Program at the Vision Series,
This talk addressed the causes of the Arab uprisings and the seemingly troubled aftermath. The speaker argued that while generalizing is useful, it often times obscures the particular dynamics in each case of the Arab revolutions, and went on to address the factors that will continue to spur mass protests if elected governments do not adequately deal with them.

FAMA is the research arm of the Arab Studies Institute.

It produces and oversees ASI’s research projects on overarching issues related to the Arab and broader Muslim worlds, including the Middle East and North Africa. The forum is the home of ASI's Knowledge Production Project, the Political Economy Project, among others. All FAMA projects are operated by the Arab Studies Institute, a nonprofit organization that produces and scrutinizes knowledge on matters related to the Arab world and its relations.
