West Asia

“The people demand the fall of the regime” was one of the main slogans of the political uprisings that began in Tunisia in late 2010 and subsequently swept other countries in North Africa and West Asia. These movements were not a one-off event, but indeed had a permanent impact on the socio-political struggles in the countries involved. Another round of renewed protests kicked off in some areas in late 2019, and although the approaches, issues, and developments in each country may diverge significantly, they have in common the will for social change, just economic conditions, and political reform.
