This chapter describes the research design—a double-paired comparison of protestors and non-protestors from Egypt and Morocco—and discusses how this design serves the investigation of mobilization for the Arab Spring. The chapter introduces the two case studies, Egypt and Morocco, and the research sample of 121 individuals, which was obtained from ethnographic interviews during field research in the Middle East, and a textual analysis of Facebook posts (in Arabic and French). The author observes that although Egypt and Morocco have similar features, they experienced opposite outcomes of the Arab Spring. Both were authoritarian, elaborated mobilization structures, and were suffering from economic hardship. Yet only Egypt experienced protests leading to the fall of its head of state.
