Since 2011, Arab countries have witnessed uprisings that changed the course of contemporary politics. These uprisings, however, have varied in nature in accordance to social environment and the ruling regimes in each country, as well as the regional climate and geopolitical position of each state. The tools employed to manage these events and the proposed solutions also differed. The Arab uprisings have affected deep transformations of the world order, bringing to the stage new influential actors and changing the nature of world crises, which have been starkly different from that which characterized the period after the end of the Second World War. These transformations also affected global concepts of security; an issue no longer confined to national defense, but also now requiring settling foreign conflicts before they become factors of regional destabilization. This included turning to the UN to widen its mandate in keeping peace and security in an attempt to reconcile the principle of non-intervention with the principle of sovereignty. Given these moves, this paper asks: How did collective diplomacy deal with the uprisings of the so-called Arab Spring? By way of an answer, it will analyze the techniques of crisis management in international relations as a legal/diplomatic-based approach to contain a given crisis that could impact the balance of the international system.
