Arab National Security: Constituents and Challenges

  • 9 June 2008

This lecture shed light on the concept of “national
security” in its various political, economic, social and
cultural dimensions. In addition, it covered the dangers
and risks that may threaten Arab national security and
the mechanisms adopted to realize such security, as
well as the vision of security from various Arab points
of view. The speaker highlighted the most important
factors that have weakened the fundamentals of Arab
national security, such as Israel’s hampering of the
Middle East peace process, the Iraqi invasion of
Kuwait, the US occupation of Iraq, the deteriorating
situations in Palestine, Lebanon, Sudan and Somalia,
as well as inter-Arab tensions. He talked about the
mechanisms of achieving Arab national security,
represented by the Arab League, the Agreement on the
Joint Arab Defense and the Arab Peace and Security
Council, established in 2006, and praised the efforts of
the Secretary General of the Arab League to make this
council a success.
