A Periodical International Journal published by the “Democratic Arab Center” Germany – Berlin. The journal deals with the field of Afro-Asian strategic, political and economic studies
Political and legal studies have always been defined as the strategic efforts undertaken by the state to protect its sovereignty and its people against foreign aggression. This concept has dominated modern studies in international relations and public international law, while recognizing the unity of the international and regional actor. Barry Poznan and Ole Weaver expanded the concept of security to other sectors, including political, cultural, food and environmental sectors in the early 1980s. Recent studies have created a common responsibility between the state and the individual to protect the environment and provide environmental security. This is what civil society organizations and environmental associations seek to achieve in the world of environmental pollution and its causes. However, the Arab World is still witnessing a frightening indifference to the issues related to its environmental security and the extent of the harm the environment is exposed to. North African countries have worked to devote effective strategies and plans to embody environmental policies that prevent from threatening the environment. In addition, environmental associations and organizations are cautioning against the governments negligence of the environment itself and accuses its practices that include the application of investment policies threatening the environment in exchange for promises that do not have content for their protection.
