In 2011, springtime came early in the Middle East as several countries experienced for the first time mass popular uprisings that overthrew autocrats long thought invincible.
But in the ensuing years things didn’t unfold as smoothly as hoped, as each country underwent different trajectories in the wake of those protests. Using Bahrain as a specific case study, this class will examine how the Arab Spring has unfolded over the past three years, explain why it did so, and explore where the region is headed.
We will also look at U.S. policy and how it differed by country given unique circumstances and competing American interests.
Newbies and veterans welcome. For those who came previously, note that we will be using a different case study!
