Abstract [en]

Essay in political science, C-level by Lisa Kringsberg, spring semester 2007. Tutor: Susan Marton. “Democracy by force – A case study of Iraq”

The purpose of this essay is to examine how the new Iraq strategy, formed by the United States, is going to effect Iraqs possibilities to become a democracy. To come to any conslusions about this I ask two questions: 1) Did the United States take in considiration what researchers think should improve the possibilities for a country to develop democracy? and 2) Did the United states take in consideration researchers presumptions in relation to Iraqs possibilities to become a democracy?

My examination is a case study of the Iraq strategy from 2007. By using theories about possibilitys for democarcy I will be able come to a conslusion and thereby fulfill the purpose of my essay.

The result of my study, and the answer to my questions is that the government of the United States in many cases did take what researchers think should improve the possibilites for a country to develop a democracy in considiration making the Iraq strategy. They did not, in most cases, take the Iraqs possibilites in considiration. It is very hard to come to any conslusion about the effects of the Iraq strategy on Iraqs possibilitys to become a democarcy, but I think that the lack of considiration of the possibilites in Iraq will make the nation building process more difficult.
