Abstract: This policy paper aims to explore what role – if any – external organisations, such as ours, can play to further democratisation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The authors of this brief have examined and reflected upon the programmatic opportunities and potential obstacles for engaging in and with the region. By increasing our knowledge of the political landscapes of the MENA region and by focusing on potential windows of opportunities or the closings thereof – where increased authoritarianism prohibits possibilities for assistance – we hope to improve our understanding of the dynamics in the region and what could potentially constitute vital building blocks for a programme in the region.
