Nearly two years after the revolutions of the Arab world, have new governments been able to fulfill the desires of the young protestors who overthrew governments in much of the region? Arabs under thirty drove the region’s revolutions, and they have emerged as prominent social and political actors. But with new governments now in power, are youth satisfied with the pace of change? America Abroad takes listeners through Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia, to understand the desires and needs of Arab youth.
America Abroad is an award-winning documentary radio program distributed by Public Radio International (PRI) and broadcast on public radio stations nationwide. Each month, we take an in-depth look at one critical issue in international affairs and U.S. foreign policy.
Anchored by public radio host Ray Suarez, this monthly program covers global issues ranging from the challenges in Iran and North Korea, to the European debt crisis and the rise of the Arab Spring.
The hour-long broadcast combines original reporting, expert analysis, and historical pieces that incorporate archival audio and eyewitness accounts. No other public radio program devotes the same amount of time, depth of coverage, and level of analysis to a single issue in international affairs.
