Abstract:The events of late 2010 and early 2011 in North Africa have ushered in profound changes in political process in the Arab world. This issue examines how these changes were initiated and developed. In the initial chapter, The Arab Spring in North Africa: origins and prospects, George Joffé draws together a narrative of the events of the first half of 2011. The following chapters deal with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the revolutions of 1952 and 2011 (Anne Alexander), party proliferation and electoral transition in post-Mubarak Egypt (Daniel L. Tavana), how physical space, social media and mainstream broadcast amplified the public sphere in Egypt's 'revolution' (Mohamed Nanabhay and Roxane Farmanfarmaian), Libya's revolution (Alia Brahimi), the social and cultural background to the Tunisian revolution (Mehdi Mabrouk), challenges to legitimate governance in post-revolution Tunisia (Duncan Pickard), the complex manner in which the authoritarian State in Algeria has been able to maintain its stranglehold over civil society at a time when it confronts a newly invigorated mass public (John P. Entelis), and constitutional reforms in Morocco (Driss Maghraoui). [ASC Leiden abstract]
