Default Re: Uprising in Tunisia (Shadi Hamid & Issandr El Amrani)

Good points - as well as bjkeefe's on nostalgia - about democracy promotion. That was one nagging discussion I keep returning to. What are the external and internal causes of democratization? Can we get beyond the Barnett vision of democracy promotion to something where we take states like Jordan to the next level of political and electoral democracy. I found those two elements compelling: Tunisia's socio-economic inequality and Jordan's dependence on US aid. Also, the section on Egypt was breath-taking. I've never heard such a criticism of the Camp David arrangment. More!
