Driven by the desire for freedom of expression, social justice, economic opportunities and dignity, young people organized protests against the incumbent leaders (Thiel 43).According to Thiel, Mohamed Bouaziz’s self-immolation after the receiving mistreatment from the local government officials angered many young people in the town of Sidi Bouzid who reacted by initiating massive protests against the incumbent leadership. In early 2011, the situation degenerated into a revolution as various groups of violent protesters emerged around the country, resulting in the ouster of President Ben Ali. The revolutionary ideals spread to neighboring nations such as Libya, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Yemen, Syria, and Bahrain, among others. Some of these revolutionary movements succeeded in their causes as in the case of Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia. In other countries, the uprisings failed due to several factors unique to each country involved. The paper will investigate the reasons for the failure of the Arab Spring in Jordan and Morocco as well as conduct a comparative analysis of factors for the failure of the Arab Spring revolutions in mentioned nations.
