Middle East had a unique social, cultural, economic and political structure throughout history. Middle East maintained its original structure largely within a broad time frame when it was under Ottoman Empire rule. The influence of the western world and modernization has resulted in a significant change in the Middle East as well as all over the world. The emergence of nationalism in the Middle East as a design of collective identity and modern state formations has revealed a new view at the social and political sense.

The rebuilding of social and political systems in the Middle East on the line of peace requires a whole new outlook and approach.
