Continuity or Change? Mapping the Political Economy of the Middle East

Continuity or Change? Mapping the Political Economy of the Middle East

The Arab uprisings that erupted in 2010-2011 have typically been presented through the narrow lens of dictatorship versus democracy. In a region now wracked by conflict and displacement, Adam Hanieh argues that a full understanding of both the uprisings and their aftermath requires a deeper examination of the Middle East political economy. Forms of authoritarianism are a function of Arab capitalism itself, particularly as it has developed through the neoliberal period. The Middle East's shifting integration with the world market - and the new patterns of uneven and combined development across the region - are profoundly impacting the nature of Arab capitalism as well as forms of political contestation.
