Abstract

The article contends that the "Arab Spring" needs to be analyzed through three analytical frameworks - democratization, authoritarian adaptation/succession, and state-failure - and that all three are unfolding simultaneously in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

Keywords: Arab Spring; Democratization; State Failure; Authoritarian Adaptation; Authoritarian Succession
