Human life is not a mere search for survival. It is also a struggle for equality and economic justice. Environment and health, production of farm and industrial goods, labor supply, and marketing of goods and services are the controlling factors of economic development. None of these, however, can be actualized without peace. Peace is a crucial condition of economic development. Without peace, economic justice cannot become a reality. On the other hand, there is no peace without economic development. Peace and development thus go hand-in-hand. Our modern economy is characterized by the predominant role of neo-liberal policies and global economic trends. Can modern neo-liberalism provide humanity with peace and economic justice? How does globalization affect human conditions all across the world?

Middle Eastern Minorities and the Arab Spring

Identity and Community in the Twenty-First Century
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0653-6
Middle Eastern Minorities and the Arab Spring: Identity and Community in the Twenty-First Century examines eleven minority groups in the early years of the so-called Arab Spring. Wide-ranging in scope, minorities of diverse religious and ethno-linguistic backgrounds are included from North Africa, the Levant, and the Arabian Peninsula. Each has experienced the Arab Spring differently and uniquely depending upon their context. Of particular concern to the international team of scholars involved in this volume, is the interaction and reaction of minorities to the protest movements across the Arab World that called for greater democratic rights and end to respective autocratic regimes. While some minorities participated in the Arab Spring, others were wary of instability and the unintended effects of regime change – notably the rise of violent Islamism. The full effects of the Arab Spring will not be known for years to come, but for the minorities of the Middle East, the immediate future seems certainly tenuous at best.
