The Milbank Tweed Forum—Arab Spring: The State of the Revolution as it Turns One

January 26, 2012

Twelve months after the mass political protests in Tahrir Square brought down the Mubarak government, Egypt and other countries in the region remain roiled by popular discontent. What has united these uprisings, and how are they now starting to diverge? If we can identify a revolution's beginning, can we say what marks its end? Are the foundation stones for constitutional democracy being laid, or will we see authoritarianism reemerge in a different guise? What are the implications of Islamists taking the helm through democratic elections?

Answering these and related questions requires assessment of the complex mix of social, economic, and political factors now in play. Come hear a panel of experts take stock of what's been going on — and ask them questions of your own.
