provides an opportunity for students to study democracy in an extraordinary context

The program will provide an opportunity for students to study democracy in an extraordinary context and with individuals who are either living through rapidly evolving efforts to govern democratically, or who aspire to be in such a situation. And it will provide Columbia with an opportunity to leverage its expertise in the study of democracy to help build expertise on democratic processes in the region. The program will be situated in Cairo and Beirut, and will draw on resources at the Global Center in Amman for logistical assistance.
