This book examines the changing dynamics of stabilization efforts in the Middle East and North Africa. Written by recognized scholars and practitioners in the field, this volume provides a rich overview of the broader spectrum of stabilization. The topics range from a comprehensive set of lessons learned in Afghanistan and Iraq to transitional justice and reconciliation efforts in Tunisia and international attempts to protect the region's cultural heritage. Ultimately, this edited collection presents a comprehensive look at the attempts to increase stability in the MENA region. It analyzes alternative perspectives on Western-dominated notions of stability in the Middle East and North Africa; explores how military and non-military actors in the Middle East and North Africa apply various instruments of national power to create conditions that enable sustainability; and includes international contributions to the scholarship on stabilization.
