dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the shape of globalization in the Middle East, specifically with respect to three major elements of globalization, those of politics, economics, and culture. This thesis attempts to shed light on the importance and difficulties of fostering positive conditions, which could facilitate favorable terms for Islamic Arabs in the Middle East to fully embrace current globalization, thus increasing the region's and inevitably the world's prosperity and stability. Moreover, this thesis also addresses and analyzes the compatibility of Islamic Arabs in the Middle East with current globalization trends. Acknowledging that Middle Eastern globalization is a fairly large subject to cover, the scope of this research has been narrowed to answer the question of whether or not the acceptance of democracy, capitalism and cultural changes by Arab Islamic Middle Eastern societies, specifically the secular authoritarian regimes and the opposing Islamists organizations, could increase the prosperity and stability within the region, and if so, bring to light the obstacles which stand in the way of such progress.en_US
