Africa and the Arab Spring: A New Era of Democratic Expectations

Africa and the Arab Spring: A New Era of Democratic Expectations

Published by Davin O'Regan
Africa's governance landscape has changed remarkably in 2011. While much of the world's attention has been understandably fixed on the historic political transitions in North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa has been experiencing its own democratic surge over the past year with advances in Guinea, Côte d'Ivoire, Niger, Nigeria, and Zambia, among other places. Inspired by the uprisings in the Arab Spring, there have also been protests in over a dozen other African capitals demanding greater political freedoms. To what extent has the Arab Spring been a driver to democratic advances elsewhere in Africa? How sustainable are these political reforms? What are the prospects for further democratic progress in Africa in the coming years? And what might regional and international actors do to contribute to these outcomes?
