In the last ten years since the 2010-2011 protests, the spaces, tools, and contexts through which individuals have come together to bring about change and mobilize across the MENA region have been dynamic. Looking specifically at Tunisia, Egypt, and Syria, how has organizing evolved on the ground, in cyberspace, and in exile? How have governments responded? What are the opportunities and challenges of this current moment, and what might the future of organizing in the region look like?
On January 28, 2021, the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy (TIMEP) hosted “Ten Years On: Organizing in Tunisia, Egypt, and Syria,” a timely virtual discussion with Aymen Zaghdoudi (Article 19), Lina Attalah (Mada Masr), and Noura Ghazi (Nophotozone), moderated by Sherine Tadros (Amnesty International).
This event is being hosted as part of TIMEP’s Ten Years On, a project intended to create a platform for unique discourse among those who have organized, are organizing, and will organize in the MENA region. Learn more here: https://timep.org/ten-years-on-organizing-in-the-mena-region/.
