EP 17 - Dana M. Moss: The Arab Spring Abroad: Diaspora Activism Against Authoritarian Regimes

Dr. Dana Moss is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame. Her research investigates how authoritarian forces repress their critics and how collective actors resist this repression in a globalized world. She is also the founding director of the Yemen Peace Project. 
Her most recent publication and first book, “The Arab Spring Abroad: Diaspora Activism Against Authoritarian Regimes,” (Cambridge University Press, 2022) investigates when diaspora actors mobilize, how they intervene, or what makes them effective. Drawing on over 230 original interviews, fieldwork, and comparative analysis, examining Libyan, Syrian, and Yemeni mobilization from the US and Great Britain before and during the revolutions, Dr. Moss presents a new framework for understanding the transnational dynamics of contention and the social forces that either enable or suppress transnational activism.
