Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to present a brief background about the Arab/Muslim – West conflicts and outline the strategy needed to achieve the Arab shared objective of cooperation and peaceful coexistence. It presents a theoretical, conceptual and empirical discourse based on recent developments in political and socio-economic spheres and relationship management theories.

The root cause of the remarkable Arab/Muslim countries’ dilemma can be traced back to two main dimensions: a regional dimension which is related to the inter-conflicts within the Arab/Muslim regions and an international dimension which is related to the endemic intra-Arab/Muslim – West conflicts. The overall cost of these conflicts is very high, since they cause political, social and economic instability, hinder the development, low foreign investment and slower rates of growth. The impact of the brutal inter and intra conflicts in the region is felt not only in terms of stunted economic growth, but also has broader social, economic and political ramifications across the Arab/Muslim countries and beyond. The current regional instability makes traditional models of and mechanisms of integration and development difficult but not impossible to pursue.

However, globalization of Western countries can cause more problem and crisis for the developing countries, if these countries are not able to compete or cooperate with developed countries. The existing economic blocs in Europe, USA, Asia, etc. create more unbalanced economic situation, which may increase the tension between the south and the north. These blocs would have an extremely prominent and powerful position as a guides and advisers in Arab countries, taking in the consideration the specific regional conditions such as culture, religion and social factors.
