In this episode of 3ala el Maydan, Malek Lakhal interviewed Youssef El Chazli, a political scientist and associate professor at Paris VIII University in Saint-Denis. He is part of the ERC-DREAM team, a research project on the archives of revolutions in the Arab Mediterranean. The team recently published a book called L’esprit de la révolte: archives et actualités des revolutions arabe, a catalogue of the last 10 years of Arab revolutions. His PhD thesis studied the reasons behind political mobilizations in Alexandria, Egypt during the 2011 revolution. His fieldwork, in both Cairo and Alexandria, led him to meet many Egyptian activists.
