An Unexpected Mandate? The April 8, 2004 Algerian Presidential Elections
Abstract:As part of the Middle East Institute's commitment to promoting and advancing Middle East studies for the next generation, the Institute in late 2003 announced the Mrs. Harley Stevens Award for the best essay on a selected theme by a graduate student at a US University. The Award was named for Mrs. Harley C. Stevens, a longtime benefactor of the Institute and the Journal, who died last year. The theme chosen for the first competition was democratization in the Middle East, with the essayists encouraged to write on a single case study. Under the terms of the competition, the Editor of the Journal chose three judges to judge the entrants. The judges were Amy Hawthorne of the Carnegie Endowment, Nathan Brown of George Washington University, and Stephen Buck, former US Foreign Service Officer, also formerly with National Defense University. The judges chose as the winner of the competition Robert Parks of the University of Texas, who received his award at the Middle East Institute's Annual Conference in the fall. The winning essay appears here.
