After the spark of the Arab uprisings in 2011, the counterreaction by regimes largely impacted the region’s political trajectory, undermining prospects for change. In general, the countries that rose up witnessed devastating conflicts and foreign interventions, state decay, and economic collapse. All this led to political orders that were structurally unstable, allowing many regimes to present themselves as purveyors of stability.
