Professor Paul Stevens, Senior Research Fellow, Chatham House

With 41% of oil exports and 59% of proved oil reserves coming from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the Arab Uprisings have raised serious questions about current and future global oil supplies. Domestic factors including poor governance, high levels of corruption and rising unemployment have driven the Arab Uprisings since January 2011. Aggravated by higher basic food prices and fed by the spread of electronic networking, the result has been major political upheavals in this region so central to global oil supplies.
