Voices of the Middle East and North Africa

Ten years after the Arab Spring

Ten years ago, the Arab Spring took the world by surprise, profoundly shaking the status quo
in North Africa and the Middle East and bringing hope for a new democratic beginning in that
long-suffering region. After several regimes were non-violently toppled in rapid succession
through peaceful pressure from the streets, reactionary forces in the region regrouped and
launched fierce counter-revolutions in certain countries and outright civil war in others. We take a historical look at the past decade with Egyptian veteran journalist and activist Hossam El-Hamalawy
