Young people are raising their voices, demanding change – new opportunities, better education, more freedom. In the Middle East and North Africa, these voices became known as the Arab Spring.
To accomplish their goals, young adults have organized marches and protests, causing unrest and civilian clashes. The Arab Spring has evolved into a regional Arab Awakening as citizens attempt to throw off the shackles of decades of restrictive oppression.
Cabrini College Communication Department seniors, in a course taught by Professor Cathy Yungmann, created a website based on interviews conducted with young people and others involved in the Arab Awakening. The Cabrini students established a relationship with a graduate-level political science class taught by Professor Pandeli Glavanis at the American University in Cairo.
