Since the rebellions of 2011, the Arab order is in a state of disorder, sitting atop a time bomb made up of youth, who constitute the overwhelming majority. Today’s youth, want more freedom, dignity, jobs, and security. The unaccountable and security driven states cannot satisfy their aspirations and, in fact, push them in the opposite direction. Although the monarchies have tended to have more legitimacy than the entrenched despots of the Arab republics, their populations still experienced lack of political expression, freedoms, and government accountability.

Over the past decade, the nature of the challenges and threats affecting the Middle East region have been among the most complex it has ever faced. The region’s political order is in a state of fundamental disequilibrium: from the unravelling of the Sykes-Picot architecture to the emergence of a nuclear Iran, and the unprecedented challenges to the legitimacy of the Arab political system. Each of these challenges is a potential threat to global peace and stability.
