Abstract

This paper examines the political and economic vulnerabilities behind the Arab Uprising. Social justice and the provision of basic needs were at the top of the demands of the revolutions in Arab Word. Arab who took to the streets sought to topple a regime, which failed to deliver on political and economic reforms, and applied policies that increased poverty and inequality. Three years after the revolutions, the record of the Arab governments in meeting the socio-economic demands of the revolutions is mixed, at best. Not a few numbers of scholars have noted that the socio-economic policies of the current government do not differ from those of previous regimes with their bias towards the interests of the business class, failure to address social injustices, and dependency on western capital and International Financial Institutions' prescriptions. The question is: why hasn’t the revolution achieved its goals? And why do the new governments continue to face crisis after crisis?
