Autocracy and its Discontents in the Arab World

How have authoritarian regimes in the Arab world adapted in the aftermath of the Uprisings of 2011? How are opposition forces and advocates of social change confronting the unfavorable political realities that have ensued since 2011? This talk takes stock of the state of authoritarianism in the Arab world more than ten years after the Arab Uprisings. It assesses the prospects for political change in the countries of the region.



Hesham Sallam is a Research Scholar at Stanford University's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law, where he serves as the Associate-Director of the Program on Arab Reform and Democracy. He is also a co-editor of Jadaliyya ezine. He is the author of Classless Politics: Islamist Movements, the Left, and Authoritarian Legacies in Egypt (Columbia University Press, 2022), co-editor of Struggles for Political Change in the Arab World (University of Michigan Press, 2022), and editor of Egypt's Parliamentary Elections 2011-2012: A Critical Guide to a Changing Political Arena (Tadween Publishing, 2013).
