Alright, after much ado, I transferred what was originally a Prezi presentation into a Powerpoint for formatting reasons, in order to post it to this blog. Technology, what can you do. The original Prezi version can be easily accessed here: http://www.prezi.com/explore, and then type this into search: “iraq and the arab spring.”
In our presentation, the Iraq group answered our main research question: Is there an Arab Spring in Iraq? Has the US Occupation of Iraq helped or hindered the Arab Spring in Iraq and the region? We supported our claims by drawing connections between the recent history of internal sectarian divisions in Iraq, regional relationships between Iraq and other MENA countries, and how US policy toward Iraq has contributed to or complicated Iraq’s role in the Arab Spring.
