  • 25 June 2014

How do ordinary citizens in the Arab world want their countries to be governed?To what extent do they have confidence in their country’s political institutions?Do they believe that religious officials should have influence in government decisions? In what areas do they favor gender equality and in what areas do they think men and women should not have equal rights and opportunities?

Findings from the Arab Barometer survey project address these and other questions about the social and political attitudes of Arab publics.Developed and governed in cooperation with scholars and institutions in Arab countries, the Arab Barometer has conducted 28 nationally representative surveys in 14 countries since it was established in 2006.

Professor Tessler will present findings from the two most recent waves of Arab Barometer surveys, conducted in 2010–2011 and 2012–2013, respectively.Included in one or both of these waves were surveys conducted in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
