Examines the upheavals currently wracking North Africa and the impact they might have on daily life in Europe. The nine studies cover political and institutional challenges and the Arab security perceptions on which western political responses have to be predicated, economic and social challenges, and the military dimensions of security in the area and the low-level violence expressed by terrorism.
