"The Arab Spring continues in 2012.Yet, its character and impact differ. In addition to the political and socioeconomic challenges for the transformation countries, it presents wider geopolitical implications for the Middle East. Power-constellations and regional conflicts are evolving as Turkey gains reputation, Iran loses influence and Israel becomes more isolated. To support the transformation countries, the EU must translate the 2011-redraft of its European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) into political practice. Moreover, it must revisit its policy vis-à-vis the Middle East as a whole and adjust it to these new geopolitical realities." [author's abstract]
