Ahmed Benchemsi's New Piece about Feb 20's Rise and Fall: A Moroccan Story

"Feb 20's Rise and Fall: A Moroccan Story" by Ahmed Benchemsi.

Developed as part of Ahmed Benchemsi's Stanford research program, this article is the outcome of a one year-long investigation on Morocco's "Arab Spring" protest movement.

The article is a short version of a book chapter from “Taking to the Streets: Activism, Arab Uprisings, and Democratization”, a forthcoming collection co-edited by Lina Khatib (Stanford University) and Ellen Lust (Yale University), to be published in 2013 by Johns Hopkins University Press.
