Since the Arab Spring began in early 2011, NDN has recognized that this unique convergence of globalization and democratic transition provides a real opportunity for the U.S. to form new and powerful relationships with the 300 million people throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), helping them develop their economies, institutions, and human capital in ways that can empower them to move toward more open, prosperous, and egalitarian societies. We believe that aiding this region requires a sustained commitment on the part of the U.S. government, corporations, non-profits, and civil society to develop robust economic and diplomatic ties. The purpose of the MENA Initiative is to support that vital work with programming, events, research, advocacy, and media engagement.
