More than eight years have passed since the beginning of the Arab Spring revolutions. The main demands of these revolutions were employment, development and social justice. However, despite the rapid changes witnessed by the region during these past years, social and economic conditions are worsening continuously with warnings of new waves of popular movements and protests. This is also the case in countries in which the movement of change continued to develop, even if it did so at a rough pace, and countries that experienced counter-revolutions in the form of military coups, the spread of chaos and sectarian and tribal conflicts through repeated attempts to restore the status quo. Even the countries that were not part of the first wave of revolutions seem to be prone to spontaneous social eruptions. Is the region really advancing towards a new wave of change? What are the political and geopolitical reflections of this wave of change should it happen?
