Microfoundations of the Arab Uprisings: Mapping Interactions Between Regimes and Protesters

Frederic Volpi (Editor), James Jasper (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract / Description of output

This book brings together a roster of prominent contributors to present a strategic interactionist perspective on the study of contentious politics in the Middle East in response to the Arab uprisings. The common thread among the contributions is an interest in the micro-level interactions between various strategic players, including not only the mobilisation of protestors during the uprisings but also the responses of regimes. The book also examines short to medium-term adaptations of the regimes and the collective action of opponents in the post-uprisings period, as well as the subsequent trajectories of the protesters themselves in the face of new forms of authoritarianism or democratisation.
