Exploring how interstate rivalries impact national politics
A hostile and competitive relationship between states, referred to as interstate rivalry, can negatively impact the processes of political change towards democracy. The EU-funded RIVALMENA project will investigate how such rivalries affect the negotiation of political change in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, specifically Tunisia, Libya and Egypt. Project work will improve understanding of the democratisation processes in MENA as existing literature focuses primarily on national factors. To achieve this, the project will use a mixed methodological approach and create databases and maps that EU institutions can use to develop EU common foreign and security policy.
