Since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the demise of the former Soviet Union, the promotion of global democracy and free markets along with the principles of human rights have become paramount to U.S. interests and foreign policy. The significance of attaining global democracy has been fueled by the proposal that liberal states do not go to war with other liberal states which in the post-Cold War environment suggests a correlation between democracy and world peace. This thesis will support the hypothesis, using Tunisia as an example, that U.S. foreign policy for global democratization will elicit the use of democracy as a window dressing in order for a country to foster and enhance foreign investment rather than to move toward democratic reform.
