About this book

This edited volume offers an understanding of how the international community, as a collection of significant actors including major states and intergovernmental institutions, has responded to the important political and social development of the Arab Spring. Contributors analyze the response by international organizations (UN, EU, NATO), big powers (US, Russia, China, UK), regional powers (Turkey, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia) and small powers (Kuwait, Qatar). The book thus makes a sound contribution to the existing literature on the Arab Spring in form of foreign policy analysis and provides an overview of the current shape and outlook of global politics.

Reviews

“A well-chosen collection of insightful and thought-provoking essays about the ways key state and non-state actors responded to the Arab Spring. The English School perspective highlights the role of international society and significance of shared norms and practices.” (Yale H. Ferguson, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Global and International Affairs, Rutgers University, USA)

“This timely and impressive volume expands our understanding of them by tackling a hitherto under-studied topic. It brings together a number of specialist contributors to analyse and evaluate the ways in which global and regional inter-governmental organisations, major world powers and regional states (both Arab and non-Arab) reacted to and tried to deal with the events of 2011 and their aftermath. The work is impressive in its comprehensiveness and depth. It offers detailed empirical analysis of the various cases, drawing on insights from international law, foreign policy analysis and international relations theory to fill an important gap in the literature on the Arab Spring. It will also be an indispensable tool for those who seek draw lessons for future policy towards similar ruptures in international society.” (Katerina Dalacoura, International Relations, London School of Economics, UK)
