paper description
Michael Emerson asks in this latest CEPS Commentary: What next after the heady days of revolutionary euphoria in Tunis and Cairo? He observes that “now is that poignant moment of total uncertainty over the future, except for the certainty that the status quo cannot last much longer”. Inevitably, next comes the long haul of struggling democratic transitions, or other scenarios. He outlines four regime options for consideration by the various parties in the region.
