Investing in A More Robust Public Policy Environment in the Middle East
June 27, 2011
With the winds of change blowing through the Arab world, the time is ripe for supporting a more robust public policy environment in the region. Over time, a disciplined and coordinated effort can help nurture an environment in which younger generations are more intimately connected with policymaking and where political debate occurs outside the blogosphere, among individuals and civil society organizations and their governments. Such an environment will contribute to enhancing the peace and security of the region and of the United States as well. The gains will not be immediate, but the impact will be enduring.
