Six years after the start of the Arab Spring, the Middle East still faces a crisis of governance and the post-colonial economic and political model on which much of the region was built has crumbled. Speaking with KPCC’s AirTalk, Carnegie’s Michele Dunne discussed the trajectory of the Middle East and the effects of the 2011 uprisings. She remarked that the most recent wave of uprisings, many of which ended tragically, is one among several coming waves of change in the region.
