Are the MENA states as presently configured are capable of implementing innovative and rewarding development strategies? How are they being integrated into the global economy, and with what political as well as economic consequences? This seminar will survey theories and practices of economic development in the Middle East and North Africa, responding to the challenges of globalization. The evolving guidelines of the "Washington Consensus" shared by the United States, the European Community, and international financial institutions, will be analyzed in light of the region's political and economic realities and contrasted with other approaches to development articulated by regional and international actors. Special attention will be paid to the evolution of financial systems in the region. You will acquire detailed understandings of at least two regimes and their respective approaches to economic development in light of their regional and international positions and domestic political strategies.
