Southwest Asia – North Africa General Information This region is characterized by economic inequality and economic vulnerability. This is a region characterized by frequent territorial disputes and boundary frictions. The Sahara Desert is the physical feature that dominates the realm. This is a region where Islamism or Islamic Fundamentalism is on the rise. Economic Inequality & Vulnerability Economic Inequality - The term economic inequality refers to the substantial differences found among states within the region that have oil resources and those without this valuable natural resource. This concept of economic inequality can be furthered applied when observing those states that process oil. Among those that do process oil there is a stark contrast among states where the wealth and benefits of oil have trickled down to the general population and states where only the elite have benefited.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
