This policy paper offers an exploration of how organisations like NIMD and Hivos can best support democratisation in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Posing questions on the obstacles to and possibilities for democracy support in the Middle East and North Africa, Beyond Orthodox Approaches offers an insightful overview of the political landscape of the region and a thorough analysis of the potential programmes that external democracy support organisations could consider.

The report includes case studies from three countries: Morocco, Egypt and Iran. The insights offered in these cases, contextualised within their respective socio-political systems, echo the challenges facing other non democratic societies. The idea of looking beyond orthodox approaches is one that NIMD and Hivos believe should be explored when working in this region.
