The Moroccan prince discussed several factors that he regarded as having played key roles in thwarting the emergence of full citizenship in the region. Writings on the Middle East itself have certainly examined refugees—their status and possibilities for incorporation or enfranchisement—but the relationship to their country of citizenship of hundreds of thousands of Arab state nationals, men and women who have migrated largely for economic or less dramatic political reasons, has been largely ignored. Key policy and institutional initiatives have been aimed at these communities in order to identify elements related to the evolution of citizenship that the initiatives may imply. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the implications of the findings for the concept of citizenship and the process of state formation. It also identifies issues which have played central roles in domestic political development and regime (in)stability.
