In the last decade, the North African region has witnessed momentous events from social justice struggles and mobilisations to massive uprisings and revolutions. The region is still a cauldron of resistance advancing demands of dignity, bread, social justice, freedom and sovereignty.

this 3rd webinar in the series ‘the Arab uprisings a decade on: Taking stock, Looking forward’, we will cover some of the second wave uprisings (2018-2021) in Algeria and Sudan and highlight some of the social and political struggles in Morocco in the last decade. We will also centre the decolonisation struggle of Western Sahara.
