The popular rebellions that emerged across the Middle East in 2010-2011 have been met with counter-revolution, increasing violent conflict, and mass displacement on an unprecedented scale. This lecture will examine the trajectories of the Arab uprisings, focusing on the deep interconnection of economic and political factors in shaping struggles for democracy and social justice in the region. Drawing upon his new book, Money, Markets, and Monarchies: The Gulf Cooperation Council and the Political Economy of the Contemporary Middle East (Cambridge University Press 2018), Adam Hanieh will examine how the balance of power and regional hierarchies have shifted in the recent period, and what this might mean for future political movements across the region.
The event will also be the premiere launch of his new book.

Speaker: Adam Hanieh, PhD Hanieh is a senior lecturer in development studies at SOAS, University of London. His publications include Capitalism and Class in the Gulf Arab States (2011) and Lineages of Revolt: Contemporary Capitalism in the Middle East (2013)
