The EUI Migration Policy Centre and the Harvard Center for Middle Eastern Studies organise a joint workshop on ‘Arab Expatriates and Revolt in their Homeland’ on 28 and 29 June 2013 at Harvard.
The workshop will explore linkages between Arab uprisings and emigration. Some contributions will deal with emigration on one side and revolt on the other as two of the three possible responses — together with silencing complaints— to oppression and mounting frustration. Others will link the two and look at the direct or indirect role of expatriates, exiles and returnees in the revolts.
