This English master-level block seminar will take place on two weekends: 19 & 20.11 2022 and 4 & 5.02.2023 – Sat: 09-17h and Sun: 10-16h


Many states and societies across the so-called Arab World witnessed protests, upheavals, and political violence since 2011. In this seminar we compare the developments across the region since 2011 and focus on a number of countries, exploring the relevant actor constellations and dynamics (domestic and international), to explain the various outcomes of transformation, military coup or restauration and civil war. The focus of the discussions will deal with the consequences for democracy and human rights in the region and beyond. The seminar will be based on academic literature but also include other sources such as films, speeches, or interviews to discuss the events and their consequences. For some of the sessions we will have guest speakers and witnesses to discuss the events during 2011 and developments since.


Please see the Moodle platform for the literature


The students will be familiar with the most important academic explanations for the various outcomes of the Arab Uprisings across the region based on the seminars literature and the discussions of these amongst the group as well as with experts and activists.
The regional and comparative approach of the seminar provides students with the opportunity to identify different actor constellations and explain the various political outcomes with respect to political violence, governance, and the situation of human rights.
After the active participation in this seminar students will have a differentiated picture of the political dynamics during the so-called Arab Spring and are aware of the consequences for the respect of human rights and the persistence of authoritarianism in the region.
