Course Description: Some political social scientists hold assumptions according to which the Middle East and North Africa are an exception in their resistance to global democratization changes. Their explanation hinges on the presupposition that Arabs accept authoritarianism in return for political stability, economic growth, and social well-being. The Arab Spring has come to refute this long-held assumption and demonstrates that there is nothing inherent in Arab countries adverse to democratization. This course principally tackles this and other non scientific conclusions. Moreover, it considers the emerging citizenship in the context of the Arab Spring as promises of democratization under the recent social and political changes which affected the MENA region. In this regard, the course explores the reasons and the conditions of the upheavals in the Arab World and starts to explain the possibility of the “Birth of an Arab Citizen” free from any political submission. Also, it analyzes the new status and role of Islam as a political and social driving force.
