Master's Professional Reports Abstract

U.S. Democracy Building: Challenges in Niger, West Africa

This report examines two common democratization strategies employed by the United States, theories that underpin them, and the challenges of implementing them. Specifically, the report examines efforts to democratize Africa, using Niger as a West African case study of recent U.S. democracy-building efforts. After identifying elements that must be present in order for democratization efforts to succeed, the report contains recommendations to improve the efficacy of democracy-building strategies.
