The Arab World Beyond Conflict is a collection of research essays on the causes of conflict in the Arab world and ways to address them. The book is based on the proceedings of ACW’s third annual conference of the same title, held in Washington, DC, on September 20, 2018. It evaluates the domestic conditions for the existence and perpetuation of conflicts in the Arab region and recommends strategies for mitigating them by highlighting the dual and dialectical relationship between the state, as the legal political entity, and the citizen, as the agent for legitimizing the state’s rule. Most importantly, this volume calls for strengthening the Arab peoples’ agency in helping not only to lessen the causes giving rise to conflict in their lives but to participate in building the states that work to prevent conflict from afflicting their societies in the first place.. A hard copy of the book can be ordered from ACW by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
