    during or through

    Can anybody explain the difference between 'during' and 'through' in the following sentence:

    They expect to see some important political developments during/through the next week or two.

    Which is the correct answer? Can we use both prepositions, and if yes, how does the meaning change?

    hey,

    in that context, i would use neither of them.

    what about this: They expect to see some important political developments within the next week or two.
