(Now 'Turbulent World')

The changes wrought by the Arab Spring have been so radical and, in some ways, so unpredictable (and unpredicted), that understanding the new contours of the Arab world has called for constant reassessment of established paradigms and conventional interpretation.

Originally launched in 2011 to address the developments and emerging debates as a result of these regional uprisings that swept the Arab world, the seminars in the first series were called 'Beyond the Arab Spring'. What began as a response to a year of rolling political upheaval has now become an ongoing series, in an attempt to examine the themes and patterns that are emerging in the Arab world as the lengthy and often painful process of transition evolves.

The changes wrought by the Arab Spring have been so radical and, in some ways, so unpredictable (and unpredicted), that understanding the new contours of the Arab world calls for constant reassessment of established paradigms and conventional interpretation. The Seminar series ‘Beyond the Arab Spring’ is an attempt to do this by examining the themes and patterns that are emerging in the Arab world as the lengthy and often painful process of transition evolves.
