The Arab Spring, which in early 2011 unleashed a series of momentous political uprisings in the Middle East starting with Tunisia and Egypt, was a seminal development for the future of that volatile region. Its effects and consequences will have a profound influence on the world. It raises fundamental questions about Islam and democracy in a region beset with civil war and the erosion of its tolerant ethos.

The Hon. Ambassador Rajendra Abhyankar, an Indian diplomat who has spent thirteen years in the Middle East in a long service of thirty-seven years, was the Consul General for India in San Francisco from 1998 to 2001. He presently teaches a graduate course on ‘The Practice of Diplomacy’ at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University, Bloomington.
