             Forum: Social Media and Social Activism

        3    Introduction
             JILLIAN C. YORK
             Generalizations cannot be made about the role of social media in social activism across disparate
             geographical and sociopolitical spaces. It's important to remember that it is the user-not the tool-
             that effects change.

             Leading  a Horse to Water  Lessons from Official Development Assistance to the Western Balkans
         3   ALEKSANDER  DARDELI
             Long held assumptions have shaped foreign assistance to the Balkans. Underlying them is a belief
             that culture and ways of thinking can be easily changed. In reality, culture can take generations to
             fully embrace democracy, free markets, and to overcome the deep-rooted loyalty to persons rather
             than institutions and principles.


       64    Prospects  in the Middle East
             AN INTERVIEW WITH DENNIS ROSS
             Ambassador Ross discusses how he came to be involved in the Middle East and his respective suc-
             cesses and disappointments at Wye River and Camp David. He also delves into the variances between
             White House and State Department-led foreign policy. Ross believes the United States has a vital
             role to play in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and contends that there may not be a set time by
             which the peacemaking process must be completed.
