Maghreb After 2011 Uprising

The Maghreb after the 2011 Uprising
In this course students will investigate the root causes and consequences of the 2011 uprising on four nations of the Arab Maghreb: Algeria, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia. We will investigate the factors that led the Tunisian and Libyan transitions to follow radically different paths and then examine the preventative measures taken by Morocco and Algeria to contain the ripple effect put into motion by the Tunisian and Libyan revolutions. Having developed familiarity with the national contexts of the Arab Spring in North Africa, we will focus on four concerns brought to the fore by its uprisings: transitional justice, human rights, neo-liberalism, and climate change. This course will provide students the opportunity to interview personalities from the Arab Maghreb through video conferences and to practice drafting reports on real case studies following the format utilized by think tanks in the United States.
