This live event/video represents the launch of the one-year-long project “10 Years On: Mass Protests and Uprisings in the Arab World.” Ten years ago on 17 December 2010, Bouazizi immolated himself, ushering in what has come to be known as the Arab Uprisings. It addresses the contours of the project and introduces the partners involved. Our first panel will be held in late January 2021, and will address the broad historical context within which the uprisings take place.
