The Arab Spring may seem like a distant memory, but a new report by a team of Arab and American analysts argues that across the Middle East people still feel the same yearning for better governance and rule of law that motivated protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square.Despite these reversals, Arabs still embrace an agenda of better governance, according to the report, titled "Arab Fractures: Citizens, States, and Social Contracts," which was published last week by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The lead author was Marwan Muasher, a former Jordanian foreign minister. He was joined by three other Arabs and three Americans.According to the Carnegie study, Arabs average more than five hours a day online.In 2014, 17 million tweets a day originated in the Arab world.The study builds on the landmark 2002 Arab Human Development Report, prepared by independent Arab researchers for the United Nations Development Program.
