The 'Arab Spring' four years on: hopeful prospects or doomed experiment?

Description
In six days, it will be exactly four years since what would become known as the 'Arab Spring' began – an often forgotten reference to the revolutionary movements which swept over Europe in the spring of 1848. That day, a young street vendor called Mohamed Bouazizi set himself alight in the streets of his native Sidi Bouzid, in the centre of Tunisia. He had decided to take his own life as a sign of protest at the injustice inflicted upon him by petty officials of Ben Ali's autocratic government, which had been in power since 1987.
