HIS 342 Week 5 Final Paper Arab Uprising/Protests of 2010-2011 / THE MIDDLE EAST

Arab Uprising/Protests of 2010-2011 [CLOs: 2, 3, 5, 6]. Due by Day 7. Starting in Tunisia in December 2010, uprisings and protests spread throughout the Arab world in 2011, leaving few states untouched. Within the 

introduction to his text, The Modern Middle East: A History, James Gelvin presents these uprisings and protests as part of a wider Middle Eastern effort for reform. He writes,

During 2010-2011, millions of Middle Easterners from Morocco to Iran have gone out onto the street demanding the same human and democratic rights and social and economic justice enjoyed by so many others throughout the world. They did this knowing they faced the full wrath of the regimes that oppressed them. And while some states broke down, leaving chaos in their wake, and autocrats held onto power or returned to power in others, those aspirations remain. (Gelvin, 2016, p. 4)
