Revolution and Political Transformation in the Middle East. With its qualitative analysis of transformation processes in developing and transition countries, the BTI provides a valuable resource for understanding The interactive Transformation Atlas is an innovative tool that helps users explore better the successes and failures of political management.
An engaging presentation of information of strategies in how to get the job done.
Thanks to its rigorous methodology, which draws on local expert sources validated through a centralized peer-review process, the BTI has proven itself to be an excellent source that captures cross-national comparisons of perceptions of corruption. The substantive qualitative detail accompanying each score enhances the legitimacy and usefulness of the data. It therefore serves as a good reference for German organizations engaged in international cooperation.
Thus, the BTI allows the Ibrahim Index research team to check, compare and draw conclusions from the wealth of information provided. While we might and should continue to discuss methodological refinements and the often varying interpretations of its findings, the BTI should be a standard reference tool for all students of global economic, social and political transformations.
Transformation Atlas users choose their own point of entry into the data set. User interest guides exploration, whether this be through global comparison, an in-depth case study, a time-series comparison or an extensive correlation analysis. There is no alterna- self-collected data.

The Arab League took on an ever-increasing role which climaxed recently when the actions of the Arab League transformed from intangible blaming and shaming to tangible punishments through substantial economic and political sanctions targeting the Syrian regime and suspension of the Syrian governments membership in the organization.
In sum, it seems neither sufficient nor eligible to analyze the current developments the MENA  region with concepts that rely exclusively on domestic factors. Yet, external influence of for instance regional organizations can only unfold their impact if the domestic conditions are favourable Schimmelfennig and Scholtz , p. All in all, none of the applied concepts seems to be able to comprehensively explain the different trajectories of the Arab uprisings in our three cases alone.
It seems necessary for further research to combine the mosaic of concepts on domestic-structural  and agency-focussed  analysis of democratisation together with the research conducted on the role of external actors such as regional organizations  to gain a more holistic understanding of the processes and dynamics underlying democratization.
