Democratic Alternatives in Arab Countries

Grant Year: 2015


David Pollock and Robert Satloff will lead an effort to assess the prospects for liberal and pluralistic politics in the Arab world. They will map liberal political forces in 17 states, assess their perspectives regarding the political evolution of their societies, identify barriers to liberal political progress, and consider how the United States should engage with liberal actors and groups in these societies. The project’s findings will be presented in a monograph and related papers and briefings.
