The Project on Middle East Democracy "is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to examining how genuine democracies can develop in the Middle East and how the U.S. can best support that process. Through dialogue, research, and advocacy, we aim to strengthen the constituency for US policies that peacefully support democratic reform in the Middle East." [1]
