Democracy Promotion and U.S. Foreign Policy

July 13, 2004 // 9:00am11:00am

VENUE: Kenney Auditorium, Nitze Building, School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), 1740 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

In December 2002 the CPRF addressed what future role democracy promotion might play in post-conflict situations. Only a year and a half later, the United States has fought a war with Iraq and transferred sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government, elections are expected in Afghanistan, and the Bush administration has formally pledged to promote democracy in the Middle East. The July CPRF will examine what role, if any, the U.S. should play in promoting democracy in countries around the world. What criteria do we use to define democracy? Do elections alone suffice? What are the implications for democracy promotion in post-conflict reconstruction?
