Security Institutions and Domestic Instability
Using secondary materials, online sources, encyclopedias, and other reference material, I will continue my research of the past year investigating when particular paramilitary forces came into existence and ceased to exist, the size of these forces, and which ministries commanded the forces. I will write brief summaries of their insights that will form the backbone of the data coding for our project supported by the Department of Defense. This project collects force information for 102 developing countries, and I focus especially on the Middle East and North Africa region.
