While lingering economic crises, recent food price spikes, and looming climate change have brought food security concerns to the fore in many policy arenas and in many countries, food insecurity and its associated causes and consequences have recently been particularly potent in the Middle East and North Africa. The policy interlinkages between food insecurity and sociopolitical instability are forcefully on display in this region in the wake of the Arab Spring of 2011. Complex food issues interact with deep sociopolitical problems, making causality difficult to infer. This chapter sizes up the current food security situation in the region and explores important dimensions for the continued interaction of food insecurity and sociopolitical instability in the coming decade.
