Effects of the ‘Arab Spring’ on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region: What are the effects of the Arab Spring on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region?
Key findings: This report assesses the impact of the Arab Spring on the MENA region, drawing on briefings, reports and articles to identify the main issues raised by experts. Because the events analysed here have occurred very recently, much of the analysis is lacking in rigorous documentary evidence. While this report focuses on regional impacts and implications of the protests, it also considers the wider global impacts insofar as these have had a knock-on effect on the MENA region.
