Radio 3's Free Thinking - 2012 Revolution and Democracy: The Arab Spring



16:30 Saturday 3 Nov 2012 Northern Rock Foundation Hall

Presented by Samira Ahmed

What kind of societies will the Arab Spring give birth to? Democratic, Capitalist, Islamic, unstable?

The revolutions sweeping the Arab world have led to the introduction of democratic rule in some countries. But is a new kind of non-western democracy emerging, and what are the implications for our world?

Discussing the Arab Spring and democracy are Jeremy Bowen, the BBC’s Middle East Editor and author of The Arab Uprisings, and Tarek Osman, the Egyptian political economist and author of Egypt on the Brink.
