ARABTRANS BASIC FACTS
It is an international research project;
It is primarily funded by European Commission through
Seventh Framework Project (FP7);
It is realized between April, 2013 – March, 2016;
It covers 7 countries of Middle East and North Africa
region;
It includes research themes spanning between areas of
sociology, politics and economics.
TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE ARAB WORLD
Since January 2011, the Arab World
entered into a historical process of
rapid and deep change of its political
and social structures. This process of
political transformations shows
some striking similarities with the
political
revolution
in
postCommunist Europe and post-Soviet
Eurasia in the period between
November 1989 (The fall of the Iron
Curtain) and December 1991 (The
end of the Soviet Union). The main
task of the proposed project is to
provide a scientific comparison the
political and social transformations
or stability in 7 Arab countries:
Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya,
Egypt, Jordan, and Iraq.
Project idea is to describe, explain and understand
the root causes, the evolution and future outlook of
the ‘Arab Spring’ in 7 Arab countries.
The main goal is to look comparatively at the
beliefs, values and behaviour with respect to
political and social transformations in 7 Arab
countries through use of comparative sample
survey. The countries covered are: Morocco,
Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, and Iraq
The central objective of
this project is to analyse
the processes of political
transformations, economic
transformations and social
transformations in 7 Arab
countries in order to
ascertain homogeneities
and heterogeneities in
their development.
