The Arab World in Light of Regional and Global Changes

  • 25 December 2019

The world is experiencing a phase of profound change driven by huge transformations in economy, technology, demography and other dynamics. While international networks are becoming more and more sophisticated, and risks and threats are increasingly growing, the world order that emerged after World War II is witnessing significant erosion, as its institutions are suffering from deterioration and a lack of effectiveness and credibility. These changes reflect a deep transformation in the balance of world power, and remarkably intensified competition between major powers.
These changes increase the state of uncertainty in the international arena and drive international dynamics in directions that have unpredictable consequences. This is especially the case amid the growing effects of tensions in the international scene, brought about by financial crises, immigration issues, technology developments and climate change.
Meanwhile, the Arab region is witnessing one of the most dangerous stages in its modern history. It is experiencing internal economic and social challenges, and growing regional security threats, in addition to the unprecedented challenges that target the key foundations of the Palestinian cause.
What is the Arab region’s relation to these international developments? How is it affected by volatile international dynamics? How should it tackle regional security threats? What role can the Arab League perform in supporting the region’s ability to tackle these challenges?
These are the key questions in the minds of those concerned with the present and future of the Arab world.
