Abstract

This presentation is based on Kuhn's essay, which traces the impact of human development on political change, focusing on the events of the Arab Spring. He posits that improvements in human development laid the foundation for mobilization against political regimes. He highlights the need for study design and datasets that can test causal pathways from health and education to political participation and attitudes.
