(p.167) Chapter 6 A New Approach for Managing Conflicts
Arab Human Development in the Twenty-first Century

Louisa Dris-Aït Hamadouche

American University in Cairo Press

The Arab region suffers several protracted internal and regional conflicts that imply very serious consequences on both the development and the stability of the region as a whole. Some of theses conflicts, such as the Arab-Israeli conflict and those in Lebanon, Iraq, and Sudan, are central, involving almost all the Middle Eastern countries and producing severely negative human, economic, and cultural consequences. Other conflicts, such as the Western Sahara and Yemen, are marginalized and constitute a source of concern at a sub-region level. In all cases, Arab countries are more interested in managing the conflicts, trying to serve their own short-term interests, than in resolving them definitely. As a consequence, the Arab region remains under enduring tensions that prevent investment in development and democratization.
