Political Reform Agenda in the Middle East
Is There Still a Political Reform Agenda in the Middle East? with discussants: Ghanim Al Najjar, Kuwait University; Khalid El-Hariry, Member of Parliament, Morocco; Amr Hamzawy, Senior Associate, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; and Paul Salem, Director, Carnegie Middle East Center. Thomas Carothers, Carnegie Vice President for Studies-International Politics and Governance, moderates the discussion.In recent years the issue of political reform in the Arab world has been much discussed both in the region and the United States and a number of countries have taken at least some reform steps.
