Middle East and North Africa – Arab Spring

4 Jul


Unsurprisingly, the uprisings and related stories from the Middle East and North Africa last year accounted for some of our best-read work in 2011. The developments in the region prompted IFEX to focus on writing more stories about how connected freedom of assembly is to free expression – especially when protest might be your main – or only – feasible form of dissent.

Here we chose some of our most-read stories coming out of the uprisings:

25 May 2011
Women face human cost of Arab Spring uprisings

23 March 2011
Security forces resort to night-time raids of terror to quell dissent

12 January 2011
Government resorts to hacking to stamp out coverage of unrest
