Abu Dhabi Gallup Forum 2011 - Restoring Dignity - The Raison D'etre of the Youth Movements in the Arab Citizen Revolt

Published on


Dignity (in Arabic: Al Karama) is a slogan that has been chanted regularly during the Arab Citizen Revolt and a concept that continues to be a central theme as events unfold. In this paper, we explore the concept of dignity, identify a conceptual framework for thinking about dignity, and connect dignity to youth and the current situation. We then use data from the Gallup World Poll of Arab youth to assess the fit of the conceptual framework.
