This study aimed at assessing the management of social transformations in the Arab countries through the employment ofthe qualitative research with its five methods (observation, content analysis, focusgroups work, brainstorming, and comparison). According to the outcome of the findings, it turns out that the social transformations taking place in the Arab countries due to geographical,biological,demographic, technological, cultural, economic, political and ideological reasons are not managed according to the dialogue approach among academics and social practitioners, which is influential on their policies.
