The Arab region: Development without democracya

Samir Makdisi

Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 2022, vol. 69, issue 1, 23-36

Abstract: Following the uprisings of 2011, only a few Arab countries have made some progress in loosening the shackles of autocracy, the region remaining basically non‐democratic. This paper explains the major factors underlying the general failure of the Arab region to democratize despite the notable socioeconomic development it has generally achieved in the past five or six decades; it concludes with summary observations on the Arab region's prospects for democracy.
