New Arab Reform Bulletin Up

The Carnegie Endowment has a new issue of the Arab Reform Bulletin up. It's always a good survey of issues regarding elections, democratization and human rights issues.

Of particular note is a good backgrounder on the upcoming elections in Mauritania, in which the leader of the latest coup is running for President. It's a country many of us know little about so it's useful to have this for reference.
