via Arab world on the BRINK of second wave of revolutions amid Syrian war, warn experts | World | News | Express.co.uk

Arab and Middle Eastern commentators said a second wave of revolts was “inevitable” as key socio-economic factors which spurred the revolutions between December 2010 and December 2012 still exist.

Mohamed Mahjoub Haroon, Professor of Social Science at the University of Khartoum, said: “Massive uncontrolled urbanisation, pressure on the job markets are, among other socio-economic factors, the leading causes behind greater expectations of the youth in the Arab societies.”

Mr Haroon noted uncontrolled urbanisation, economic stagnation and market forces were the three central socio-economic forces which caused the Arab Spring to spread across numerous countries in North Africa and the Middle East.
