Abstract:

"This volume...[provides an overview of] the major regional international organizations of the Middle East. Analysing the Arab League, the Gulf Cooperation Council, and the Arab-Maghreb Union..., it explores their successes and failures across their full range of activities (economic, social, and political), while contextualising the reasons why many consider that these organizations have stalled. The book: assesses the reasons why IOs in the Middle East are under-developed relative to neighbouring regional organizations; explores their history, evolution, and structure, while considering the successes and failures of each IO; analyses the reasons for the specific difficulties faced by each organization through the context of intra-regional relations; develops a new framework for analysing the forces that have shaped these bodies and challenges the existing narrative that largely ignores the achievements and prospects of the organizations; and considers the likely impact of the Arab Spring upon the future development of these frequently overlooked regional international organizations."--
