An Emerging Arab Social Contract

Khalaf, Abdulhadi LU (2011) In Energy & Geopolitical Risks 2(2). p.13-17
Abstract
While it is too early to speculate on the long-term results of the events, the revolutions have already discredited certain assumptions about the Arab world. The first are those assertions suggesting that Arab rulers have engaged their people in a golden bargain, where the people trade off their citizenship entitlements and democratic rights in exchange for the rulers providing welfare, safeguard national integrity, and/or stability. The second assertion is found in the works of some leading Western Academics who represented the 'Arab' as “culturally incapable of adjusting to the prerequisites and implications of modern state-building,” and considered

that “Arab culture is inherently opposed to fundamental ideals of modernity…”
