INSIDE THE MIDDLE EAST | ENTERING A NEW ERA
THE MIDDLE EAST IS ENTERING A NEW ERA | IS IT A NEW DAWN? OR IS IT A SETTING SUN?
In the third decade of the twenty-first century, the Middle East is entering a new era.
The era is both defined by, and a result of, a combination of ancient and modern, domestic, regional, and international processes.
Iran and Turkey each strive to position themselves as the regional superpower. In parallel, the people of the region struggle to overcome increasing domestic challenges.
These developments, combined with an escalating struggle over path, identity, and direction, could result in a new model of statehood in the Arab world.
While some countries take the turbulent path toward a possible new state, others are fighting for their sovereignty and survival. All of this is occurring while Western hegemony in the Middle East is coming to an end and the Eastern giants are on the rise.
