Elizabeth Crighton – Whither the Arab Spring?

(September 17, 2013) Elizabeth Crighton, Professor of Government and Politics at Pomona College, talks about the failure of the revolutions across the Middle East and North Africa to deliver on their promises. Dr. Crighton outlined three chief reasons for the failure of the Arab Spring – the new governments’ “substantial lack of political capacity”, the military obstacle in front of democracy, and the largely fragmented opposition groups in Egypt, Syria, Libya, and the other countries in the MENA region.
