Stabilization and development in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena)

Contributing to stabilization and development in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) 

In early 2011, a wave of demonstrations and riots reverberated across the Arab world, which soon came to be known as “the Arab Spring”. In order to express dissatisfaction with their political and socio-economic conditions people throughout the region chanted: “Bread! Freedom! Social justice!” ("!عيش! حريه! عداله اجتماعيه").

Since then, the situation in many MENA countries has changed, but unfortunately not always for better. Tunisia is on a good path towards democracy. However, in some countries the old regimes, backed by the military, have mostly succeeded in re-establishing their authority. Tragically, several other MENA countries have been torn apart by civil war to the extent that the “state” has largely dissolved.

In a large research and advisory project, funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik investigates the causes of domestic change in MENA countries and their consequences for the MENA region and for Germany and Europe.
