What Remains of the Arab Spring? Challenges Impeding the Achievement of Social Justice in the Arab Region

January 2016

Five years after the popular uprisings that swept the Arab region, this report analyses the consequences of the Arab Spring, by focusing on three cases studies, namely Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco. It sheds light on the constitutional and political processes in these countries and examines the different new laws and legislations that have been enacted, as well as the socio - economic programmes that have been initiated to support the achievement of social justice. Findings reveal positive developments in terms of adopting a participatory approach in the drafting of the Constitutions and in integrating provisions in the new Constitutions on the promotion of social justice.
