Political Violence and Democratization as a Repercussion of the Arab Spring’s Successful Insurgencies; Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen
This paper will propose a literature review that closely examines the reasons why democratic transition may have succeeded in Tunisia, yet failed in other states that saw regime change as a result of the Arab Spring. It will argue that insurgencies caused by the Arab Spring, and the new governments that followed resulted in an increase of political violence in Egypt, Libya and Yemen. It will argue that the radically divergent political trajectory observed in Tunisia has been primarily due to differences in both structural and conceptual realities within Tunisian society. This proposed review will discuss the economic and political aspects of a successful non-violent insurgency. This proposal includes my research question, my criteria for gathering information, a list of objectives, and my preliminary references.
