Throughout the Middle East and North Africa regional actors and external powers use military means as a key instrument to pursue their political agendas and address perceived security threats. In 2016 most states in the region were engaged in military activity either on their own territories or in other states in the region (see table 3.1). To illustrate the importance given to military capability by states in the region, this section provides an overview of patterns of military expenditure and arms transfers to countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
