The Changing Middle East

Focusing on change is required academically but it could also help in the elaboration of relevant policies to cope with the evolving challenges on the ground. One of the early manifestations of this steady change is the debate from within on the definition of the region and the emphasis on a distinct Arab identity. If the relationship between global and regional levels of analysis appeared to find a happy solution with the elaboration of the international subsystem concept, the problem of analyzing change remained marginalized. To be operational and applicable, such a research program has to go beyond being satisfied with a pure juxtaposition of disciplines if it is to be interdisciplinary and focused.
