Dakhlallah, Farah. “The Arab League in Lebanon: 2005–2008.” Cambridge Review of International Affairs 25.1 (2012): 53-74.
Contrary to expectations, the Arab League has emerged as an active player in the Middle East region over the past decade. The League’s roles in negotiations to end the 2006 Israel–Lebanon War and in the brokering of the 2008 Doha Agreement between warring Lebanese factions present two instances of ‘partial’ and ‘direct’ contributions to success in resolving major extra-systemic and minor internal conflicts. These developments are part of a global trend of the regionalization or decentralization of security in the post-Cold-War context.
