The Arab World

So much the epicentre of many of the most vital global issues, the Arab world – along with its neighbours, Iran and Turkey – has for decades seen the ripples of its social, religious and political trends spread way beyond its homeland. But within the borders of this region – dominated as it is by as much cultural, religious and social variety as homogeneity – are communities whose lives and livelihoods bear little relation to the global issues by which its peoples are known. Many years spent living and working in the Arab world has provided Mark Huband with the opportunity to learn from its peoples as to how they see themselves, where it is that history and tradition can meet modernity and aspiration, and what next steps are likely as once-stagnant political life takes on a new shape in the wake of the Arab Spring.
