Of all the world’s major regions only the Middle East lacks an inclusive system for dialogue and cooperation over security issues. Originally published in 1998, the report of the SIPRI Expert Group remains a landmark study by a distinguished group of regional experts on how such a system could be created in the Middle East.
In this edition, the original report is republished in its entirety, along with an extensive new afterword by the author identifying lessons from work to date on a regional security system that are relevant to today’s Middle East. This new edition is one of the most comprehensive, far-reaching examinations of regional security in one of the world’s most troubled areas.
