US Democracy Assistance to the “Middle East and North Africa”

Posted in College, topic with tags , , on May 24, 2011 by kevin kuswa

Hi all,

You may have heard that the college community is contemplating an “Arab Spring” topic area put together by Gordon Stables.  A quick question for the folks here: how would you set up variables for what countries to include/exclude?

In other words, if you look at all the countries in the region, which ones would be best to debate in terms of increasing US democracy assistance?  Why would you select those particular countries?  There are a lot of ways to answer this and many people are engaged in research on this very question.  If you have any thoughts on how to evaluate this question, post them here or on the CEDA Forums!

Thanks in advance,
