arab spring

Four former U.S. Ambassadors to the Middle East and North Africa say the signs of a revolution were in place before the Arab Spring began in 2010.

A day-long workshop Sunday at UNO focuses on events in the Middle East in the year since the so-called Arab Spring.

Arab Spring refers to the uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and other Middle East nations. It led to the overthrow of longtime dictators, and transitions to new governments. Workshops at Sunday’s conference will focus on Israel and Palestine, Iran, North Africa, and Egypt.
