  • Descrição: The situation of conflict and turmoil in the Middle East seems nowhere near coming to an end. The unravelling of the Iraqi state after the American war against Saddam Hussein effectively lifted the lid off widespread dissent against political elites brewing across the region. However, the groundswell of protests and demonstrations that swept long-term regimes out of power have only marginally delivered on the promise of greater democracy, as the West hoped. As civil wars rage from Yemen to Syria, domestic sectarian interests are now supported by regional and extra-regional powers with an interest in the outcome of these conflicts. As a result, outcomes are hard to come by and predictions about the future of the region difficult. This issue of the India Quarterly looks at the many ways in which the situation in the Middle East can be understood.
