Acclaimed journalists and academics at Fanack provide an overview of politics in the Middle East and North Africa.
From democracies to monarchies, from military regimes to theocracies, the Middle East and North Africa represents a varied political landscape.
In recent years, the Arab uprisings of 2011, also known as the “Arab Spring” seemed to have triggered a major political shift across the region, but the outcome is still debated.
Fanacks’s Politics file presents an analysis of the structure of the various governments and focuses on major political events such as elections, upheaval and political movements. It also analyses corruption, one of the biggest grievances in the region, as well as the rise of extremist groups.
Our mission is to offer a worthwhile contribution to the publication of balanced background and up-to-date information on the topic from an Arab perspective.
