Hot Contention, Cool Abstention

The final chapter puts the findings in perspective by reflecting on the existing literature on the Arab Spring, political mobilization, and reasoning processes. It also discusses generalizability and policy implications of the findings related to current events in the Middle East. The analysis included individuals from two countries with very different protest levels and political outcomes. Some individuals were from Egypt, where the uprisings involved millions of people and led to the fall of the president, and other individuals were from Morocco, where mobilization levels were much lower and did not result in the resignation of the head of state. The finding that an unusually large number of protestors from such different contexts displayed signs of hot cognition, whereas a large number of non-protestors from these contexts displayed signs of cool cognition suggests that similar patterns might be observed in other settings as well.
