Picture of New Actors and Issues in the Post-Arab Uprisings Period

New Actors and Issues in the Post-Arab Uprisings Period

Editor(s): Jülide Karakoç, Duygu Ersoy

Book Description

The Arab uprisings that emerged in reaction to unemployment, high inflation, corruption, and the lack of liberty under authoritarian rule in the Middle East and North Africa paved the way for social and political transformations in the region. As a consequence of these uprisings, new actors have gained prominence, while regional issues have become more aggravated and complicated, challenging existing national borders. The involvement of a broad range of regional and external actors in various parts of the region has created new conflicts and alliances. New Actors and Issues in the Post-Arab Uprisings examines how the post-Arab uprisings period, with its diversity of issues and actors, challenges existing policies and national borders in the Middle East. This collection provides readers with a deeper understanding of the political and social changes that are underway through diverse perspectives on various critical issues.
