Révolutions, contre-révolutions : qu’en dit l’historien ?

Abstract : The historian Jean-Pierre Filiu emphasizes the role of origins in shaping movements born in 2011. The denial of the self-determination of Arab peoples by Europeans in the 19th-20th centuries as well as their authoritarian Arab successors forms the cornerstone of the popular explosion of the decade following 2010. Through his deconstruction of simplistic western prejudices around the idea of “degagism,” he highlights the powerful feeling of democratic failure and the will to overhaul their system which have motivated the Arab peoples. While retracing the importance of the peaceful nature of Arab uprisings throughout history, this interview spells out the limits that the populations have to face.
