ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts made by the Arab League to pursue peacekeeping initiatives in the Middle East. When Arab Peace Initiative was revived on March 2007, it was based on international legitimacy and international and humanitarian law. The move was a clear indication of their resolve to opt for a strategic solution and not a provisional or tactical one to weather the crisis in the relations between the Arab countries and the international community especially the U.S. The organization also formed an expanded follow-up committee composed of 12 states wherein some of them are directly concerned with the peace process while others represent regional groupings in the Gulf and the Maghreb to push for scheme and ensure its acceptance.
