Özet

The MENA was for a very long time termed as a region that is incompatible with democracy mainly due to Islamic culture. The political system in the region has generally been the same, with almost all its countries ruled by dictators until the outbreak of the Arab Spring which challenged the status quo and the general assumption held by many analysts and observers regarding the region. The ousting of long serving dictators such as Zine Ben Ali, Hosni Mubarak and Muammar Gaddafi ignited strong hopes that these countries would fully democratize. Tunisia was the only country that democratized fully following the Arab spring, however the political development in these countries a decade since the popular uprising has shown signs that these countries are struggling to consolidate their democracies where attained.
