This paper presents proposals on building a regional security system in West Asia and North Africa. The authors emphasize the need to reorganize the economies of the states of the region, including, in particular, the Arab Mashreq subregion. It would help to restore the previously disrupted balance of power. The multiplicity of crises in West Asia and North Africa impairs the effectiveness of the region’s international institutions and is not conducive to advancing regional integration projects. Setting up provisional working groups comprised of regional leaders appears to be the most adequate solution; strategically, the most adequate way would be to create a comprehensive security system.


This paper presents proposals on building a regional security system in West Asia and North Africa. The authors propose to use the term “West Asia” to facilitate new views and approaches on the existing problems and bring economic and geographical interaction to the forefront of the relations between the external and regional actors and within regional actors themselves.

The authors emphasize the need to reorganize the economies of the states of the region, including, in particular, the Arab Mashreq subregion.

The multiplicity of crises in West Asia and North Africa impairs the effectiveness of the region’s international institutions and is not conducive to advancing regional integration projects.

Setting up provisional working groups comprised of regional leaders (or using similar formats) appears to be the most adequate solution; strategically, the most adequate way would be to create a comprehensive security system.
