The Arab Transformations Project involved an international research consortium of 11 partners which conducted extensive research focusing on Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, and Iraq. Its aim was to help understand and evaluate political, social, and economic transformations before and after the Arab Uprisings of 2010-11.
