The United States Illogical Practice of Democratic Peace Theory in the Middle East

From this basic framework stems the idea called “democratic peace theory” (pg. 82). Democratic Peace Theory (DPT) asserts that democracies do not generally fight other democracies because they share common norms and domestic institutions that constrain international, state actors from going to war....   [tags: Democratic Peace Theory (DPT)]
