Who will present her PhD research on
Democracy and Political Parties in the Arab World. Case Study: Sudan and Lebanon
On this occasion, we will have the pleasure of receiving Pascal Boniface – the Director of the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS, Paris).
The present research examines democracy in the Arab World with an emphasis on comparing democracies in both of Sudan and Lebanon. It analyses the variance and similarity between the two cases; and identifies the political, social and cultural reasons and factors that led to the hindering of establishing democracy in Sudan in contrast to its relative success in Lebanon. The research examines the role of political parties and their discourses are compatible with their social and political objectives.
