In this special episode of The New Arab Voice, we revisit the widespread pro-democracy movement that drastically changed the face of the Middle East and North Africa. Ten years ago, Tunisian fruit vendor Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire after enduring harassment from police officers, triggering the Arab Spring - a wave of anti-government protests that shook the region.

This two-part episode focuses on five Arab Spring countries: Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen and Syria. We have spoken to the individuals who were there 10 years ago, those who work to improve their country today, and others who answered a question that was asked time and again: "How did we get here?"

In part one, we examined the legacy of the Arab Spring in its birthplace Tunisia, as well as neighboring Libya. For this second part, we will look at the uprisings in Egypt, Yemen and Syria.

Featuring comments from:
- Hossam el-Hamalawy, Egyptian activist
- Mona Eltahawy, Egyptian-American journalist
- Afrah Nasser, Yemen Researcher at Human Rights Watch
- Kholoud Helmi, Syrian journalist
