ABSTRACT
The article discusses the process of managing the political crisis that is experienced in Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The author asserts that the long-standing authoritarian regimes across MENA choose to defend their short-term interest than to look for solutions that will bring long-term benefits. He also considers the crisis to be at its infancy and that stronger political reforms are thus needed.
