In many Middle Eastern countries, as much as 70 percent of the population is under the age of 30. These disaffected youth used Facebook and Twitter to start the revolutions that rocked the Arab world this spring. Will the next decade see more democracy in the Arab world, or will extremist groups like al–Qaeda remain popular? Journalist Robin Wright joins us to discuss the Arab Spring and what the future might hold for that region.


Robin Wright is a journalist, a foreign policy analyst at the US Institute of Peace and the Woodrow Wilson International Center, and editor of "The Iran Primer."
