New WPR Features: Engaging Islam

President Barack Obama took office promising to extend an “open hand” to the Islamic World. But what will the effort entail? In its latest set of feature articles, WPR examines “The Open Hand: Engaging Islam.”

Nathan Field looks at “The Re-Education of Radical Islam,” Shadi Hamid examines “Democracy Promotion in the Aftermath of Iraq,” and R.S. Zaharna tackles “Obama, Public Diplomacy and the Islamic World.”
