It Happened Before, It’ll Happen Again Iyad el-Baghdadi

Oslo Freedom Forum in Johannesburg
March 26, 2018

Palestinian writer and activist Iyad el-Baghdadi rose to prominence due to his diligent reporting of the Arab Spring uprisings. He spoke at the first Oslo Freedom Forum in Johannesburg on why the Arab Spring failed to produce tangible results, but also how Arab youth are the most educated and informed age group in the history of the Middle East, and his hope for future democratic movements in the region.
