ARABSPREE is an online personal blog with articles commentating Arab public life, Arab identity and Arab relations with the outside world. It is open to views, comments and contributions of interested guests. The views expressed on ARABSPREE represent only the opinion of the blogger or the invited contributors.
Inspired by the freedom spree following the change wave that swept the Arab world in 2011, this website is initiated one year later as a personal blog offering commentaries on public life issues in Arab countries, but also on Arab identity and Arabs’ relationships with the world.
The ARABSPREE blog website has an open thematic focus and is not directed at any particular issue such as the now-called Arab Spring. Instead, it goes beyond this particular turning point and offers a critical review of things beyond the emotional bias inherent to one revolutionary outburst.
The ARABSPREE does not aim at offering an inside view of public life in Arab countries, but rather reflects the views of an informed observer. Its special focus will be designated to Yemen, a little-known country with a thrilling social and political structure.
