The Arab uprisings captured our attention eight years ago, dominating the news cycle. Since then, the situation in the region has been characterized by catastrophic humanitarian crises, reconsiderations of governance structures and policies toward both liberalization and authoritarianism, and military consolidations and responses. The underlying demographic, economic, and social issues faced by citizens have persisted or even deteriorated. This teach-in brings scholars and journalists to discuss Palestine, Yemen, Iraq, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia over the past decade. Teachers of world history and geography, global studies and regional studies will gain perspectives from the experts and acquire teaching resources on these challenging and crucial topics.
