dc.description.abstractMuch has been written about the regional order in the Middle East in recent years. Ever since the Arab uprisings started in 2010–2011, debates on whether regional politics changed fundamentally, and perhaps even irreversibly, have abounded.1 Certainly, the region has witnessed significant developments since 2011. Revolutions have ousted long-term autocrats, civil wars involving multiple armed groups erupted, and the antagonism between Saudi Arabia and Iran reverberated throughout the region. Several regional actors, most notably Türkiye, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Qatar, upped their game in Middle Eastern politics, as did Russia and China, while the United Sates (U.S.) somewhat retreated from the region. Amid this turmoil, surviving regimes, increasingly obsessed with staying in power, manipulated sectarian divides and strengthened the authoritarian hold over their citizens. But how radical and qualitatively new are these developments? Are we witnessing the emergence of a fundamentally new regional order in the Middle East? And are the latest military confrontations between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas, that started after Hamas overran a swath of southern Israel on October 7, killing roughly 1,400 people and taking over 200 hostages,2 likely to be a turning point in regional politics?en
