terms-of-use Jöst, Prisca 2021-12-16T09:38:35Z This chapter presents the results of a quantitative protest event data analysis. In line with the overall topic of the book, the focus is on the dynamics of socioeconomic protests since the 2011 revolutions. Empirically, the chapter is based on the data provided by the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED), which has been coded and analyzed so as to specifically grasp socioeconomic contention. After briefly describing the data and the methods used, the chapter presents and discusses the main findings on the overall evolution of protests and the specific dynamics of socioeconomic contention in Egypt and Tunisia between 2011 and 2016. After looking at the protest numbers in both countries and their evolution over time, it assesses the protest actors, their claims, the different tactics used, and the geographical patterns of socioeconomic protests. In a final step, the chapter discusses the results of the data analysis from a comparative perspective and finds important differences in the quantity and striking similarities in the quality of socioeconomic protest in the two countries.
