What does the fifth wave of the Arab Barometer tell us about social and political changes in the MENA?

Dates:
  • Thu 10 Oct 2019 16.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-10-10 16:00 2019-10-10 18:00 Europe/Paris What does the fifth wave of the Arab Barometer tell us about social and political changes in the MENA?

The results of the fifth wave of the Arab Barometer released recently have shown major social and political shifts within MENA region societies. During this wave, more than 25,000 people were interviewed for a survey across 10 countries and the Palestinian territories between late 2018 and spring 2019. The survey covered a wide range of issues, including support for democracy, attitude towards religion, women’s rights, migration and security.
Increasing restraints on conducting fieldwork in the Arab region makes the results of this last wave an important source of information for understanding how Arabs feel about social and political changes in their region, and what possible implications these changes in public attitudes could have on political developments in the MENA. In this lecture, Dr. Khalil Shikaki will present the main findings of this last wave, and will also link them to the findings and trends covered by previous waves of the Arab Barometer over the past decade. His presentation will focus on major trends concerning the future of Islamism, demand for democracy, and interest in emigration in the region and among the youth in particular.
