10 Years after the Arab Uprisings: Where does Public Opinion in the Region Stand Today? - Regional Programme Political Dialogue and regional Integration in the Southern Mediterranean
This portlet should not exist anymore
A decade after the Arab uprisings, the region has experienced vast changes. Despite some political reforms after 2011, discontent remains high across the region with large-scale protests breaking out in 2019 in a number of countries across the region. Long-term weak economic growth has been exacerbated by the outbreak of COVID, placing significant stress on national economies and public services such as health and education.
Amidst these challenges, the 2020 Survey of the Regional Program Political Dialogue South Mediterranean of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS PolDiMed), conducted by Arab Research and Analytics Associates (ARAA), reveals a changing and divided region. The surveys included a total of 10,841 respondents in the following six countries: Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia.
This online seminar and survey launch will not only present the main findings of the KAS PolDiMed 2020 Survey, but also critically discuss and contextualize the results with outstanding experts on the region. The KAS PolDiMed 2020 Survey will be distributed in text form in the first months of the new year and presented at different locations and occasions throughout 2021.
