Abstract :

This paper analyzes correlation between globalization and democratization in Arab World with the Arab Spring as a case of study. Qualitati ve analysis is  used  to  observe  domestic,  regional  and  global  dimension  of  the  Arab Spring.  This  research  found  that  democratization  in  Arab  is  cross  border phenomena  which  are  involved  not  only  state  actors,  but  also  non-state actors starting from individuals and groups of people to global c ivil society. It is a  difficult journey to consolidate  democracy  in the Middle  East  due to state actors represented their elites generally prevent oppositions coming to power by using non-democratic action. At the same time, Western countries which  have  influence  to  the  elites  in  the  Middle  East  are  not  serious  on democracy. Meanwhile, oppositions mostly coming from Islamic movements by  using  media  and  information  technology  try  democratizing  political system in Arabic countries. They believe that democracy is a way to prevent a tyranical power coming to power.
