Abstract

This paper defines and examines the Obama Doctrine by contextualizing it through the lens of other presidential doctrines and schools of realism and idealism. In addition, it seeks to establish the doctrine's tenets and contradictions. It then examines Obama’s arc of disenchantment with the Arab Spring and explains how this arc affected the way he made policy regarding the Middle East.
