Social Movements and Popular Mobilisation in the MENA

LSE Middle East Centre Research Network

The Arab uprisings have caused a deluge of interest in social movements and contestation in the region from both inside and outside Middle East Studies, from the public, from policy-makers, and from students since this uniquely televised, tweeted and mediatised revolutionary process was launched.

The LSE Middle East Centre has established a network which aims at bringing together academics and students undertaking relevant research. The objective is to generate a platform which will drive forward intellectual development and cutting-edge research in the field.

This network hopes to serve as a key hub for news, academic discussion and collaboration on social movements and popular mobilisation in the MENA region. It is led by Dr John Chalcraft (Government Department), in consultation with Professor Fawaz Gerges (IR Department), Dr Hakan Seckinelgin (Department of Social Policy) and Professor John Sidel (Government and IR Departments).
