This chapter discusses the regional systems as they relate to and impact upon Arab foreign policies. The foreign policy of states is shaped not only by their national situations and the values/perceptions of policymakers but also by the global and regional environments in which they operate. National and elite interests/concerns influence what governments would like to do but systemic conditions shape what they are able to do. The chapter examines systemic conditions within the region at the domestic, intersocietal, and interstate levels and analyzes their impact on the security agendas and foreign policies of Arab states with a view to assessing the applicability of these competing perspectives.

Keywords:   foreign policy, Middle East, Arab countries, coalition wars, systemic conditions
