Determine how these leadership competencies apply to organizational success.
n revolution. Many argue that a younger population leads to uprisings, however there is stronger correlation correlation between young unemployment rates and successful uprisings rather than just looking at age, as many states with young populations didn’t have any uprisings at all. We also examine how the diffusion of social networks contributed to success, as well as the posture of the army in such state. We can dissect all three of these variables through historical regime characteristics that determined relative balance of power between oppositionists and the regime itself thus better identifying the roots of successful and failed authoritarian rule. When looking at such correlations we can conclude early on that the military was the heart of determining whether the tensions of protest would result in revolution, and when looking at the military’s role we can determine that it is conditioned by the states oil wealth and historical hereditary rule. States who have succeeded in the oil market and states who have had successful hereditary transfer of power see more loyalty in the military thus protecting the regime against opposition. States who succeeded in revolution had a lack of oil wealth as well as non-successful transfer of dynastic power within the regime, resulting in disloyalty towards the regime within the military and therefore successful revolution. This explanation of structural variables such as oil wealth and dynastic rule could’ve been measured before these events and therefore predicted the outcomes of such uprisings. We saw different amounts of repression in each of the studied states, however this was not a defining factor in the outcome of uprisings. We only saw faltered regimes in states where the military turned against such regime. The fusion of oil wealth and hereditary rule in certain Arab states increased the regimes despotic power on their people and military, giving such regimes more coercive power on the situations that raised in 2011. We see a correlation between these variables and success rates as regimes that lacked both variables succumbed quickly and non-violently to the uprisings, while regimes with one or both variables resulted in violent war between the regime and its opposition. Oil creates mass wealth for states with a big supply and these regimes used this wealth on the military, creating a strong political bond between the military and regime leaders. This loyalty was only strengthened when the regime had a successful transfer of dynastic power, as the successor would be viewed similarly to his predecessor, maintaining a cohesive political and military strategy. They also used the mass wealth to pay off their population, called popular renterism, creating mass support throughout their general population. Oil wealth gave regimes infrastructural power as they were able to penetrate civil society and coerce their citizens to step back from the opposition with bribes and public benefits. This infrastructural power made it hard for its citizens to turn against the regime, as they relied on the regime for everything from healthcare to getting paid. We also see the power of oil wealth when we examine the western influence on the uprisings. As foreign powers often incentivize change, the western world has pockets of permissiveness as they need to maintain good relations with these powers to preserve oil flows as well as defend Israel.
