Africa Program

On Friday, June 4, 2004 the Wilson Center's MIDDLE EAST PROGRAM and ISRAEL POLICY FORUM co-sponsored a conference regarding The Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiative, the Bush administration's plan to promote democracy in the Middle East. The initiative--which calls for Middle Eastern and Mediterranean governments to undertake political, economic, and social reforms--was launched February 2004 and is loosely based on the 1975 Helsinki Accords. Alina Romanowski, acting deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, delivered a keynote address entitled "The U.S. Role in Supporting Reform in the Region." Two panels followed, one exploring U.S., and the other foreign perspectives on the Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiative. Speakers' presentations will be posted to this website as they are received.
