dc.description.abstract This thesis analyzes democratization models for deeply divided society undergoing political transition. It takes the federalization and consociationalization strategies as implemented in Iraq as a case study. A comparative analysis is further conducted in order to evaluate the Iraqi governing experience in contrast to alternative power-sharing strategies for ethno sectarian divided societies. The thesis provides an assessment of the various power-sharing models and entertains the viability of majoritarian pluralism. It focuses on each model success in the attainment of four major transitional indicators: security, ethnic/sectarian pluralism, national cohesion, and social equity. These four transitional indicators are further evaluated in their foreign policy implications relevant to three neighboring countries: Iran, Syria and Turkey. The thesis demonstrates the viability and limitations of power sharing models for ethnically divided countries undergoing democratic transitions. en_US
