Inter-Arab Alliances

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the security dilemmas involved in Arab politics. It explains that security dilemma refers to an external dynamic of arms racing and spiralling regional insecurity and suggests that Arab states face two specific security dilemmas. The analysis reveals that the traditional focus on security as limited only to external military concerns is dubious at best for the Arab states system and perhaps well beyond given the fact that there is more than one security dilemma at work.

Keywords:   security dilemmas, Arab politics, arms race, regional insecurity, Arab states, military concerns
