ABSTRACT
The article examines the political outlook in the Middle East for the 2010s. It observes that the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is standing at a crossroads between authoritarianism and political liberalization after the "Arab Spring" uprisings of 2011. It also cites the absence of an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, demographic pressures, sectarian conflicts, decreasing economic opportunities, and impending water scarcity as key challenges to security and stability in the region.
