pursue [make policy]

Operating from a weak legitimacy base, Arab leaders have often lacked the requisite initial “political capital" to generate effective policies that constitute the building blocks of stable public order. Even in polities where conditions are favorable, policy making and administration have been arbitrary, discontinuous, and pursued in a milieu of large-scale official corruption. The frequent failure of elites to develop and implement socially beneficial policies has led to the erosion of their tenuous legitimacy and to a consequent increase in the use of force to maintain control.

Does 'pursue' mean 'continue' here?

    Not exactly - it means something more like "done". Or using less simple vocabulary: undertaken, carried out.
