Bridging the Divide believes that 'citizen activists' and activist groups, connected electronically, will play an increasingly important role in foreign relations.
Now, as the Middle East moves toward renaissance and America seeks to redefine its role as hegemon in the 21st century, we have sought to identify and promote citizen organizations, which are passionate about their causes and which are transparent in the way they do their work. Over the next several months, we will expand their number significantly to include activists from the United States. For those organizations which you find on our pages, Bridging the Divide serves as a vehicle for promoting them and their 'peer to peer' efforts and, when needed, for expanding their links to counterparts on each side of the Atlantic.
It is our belief that once connected, the American and Middle Eastern activists will share resources and advocacy in their common cause without intermediaries; that these direct links will become the principal means for projecting America's values and interests abroad. The technology allows it; the times demand it.
