The Rise of Islamic Political Movements and Parties: Morocco, Turkey and Jordan [9781474450676]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Although regarded as a single community of Islamists, Islamic political movements utilise vastly different means to pursue their goals. This book examines why some Islamic movements facing the same socio-political structures pursue different political paths, while their counterparts in diverse contexts make similar political choices. Based on qualitative fieldwork involving personal interviews with Islamic politicians, journalists, and ideologues - conducted both before and after the Arab Spring - author Esen Kirdis draws close comparisons between six Islamic movements in Jordan, Morocco and Turkey. She analyses how some Islamic movements decide to form a political party to run in elections, while their counterparts in the same country reject doing so and instead engage in political activism as a social movement through informal channels. More broadly, the study demonstrates the role of internal factors, ideological priorities and organisational needs in explaining differentiation within Islamic political movements, and discusses its effects on democratisation.
AUTHOR: Esen Kirdis is Associate Professor in International Studies at Rhodes College. Her current research explores Islamic political parties, Islamic movements, religion and politics and cross-religious comparative politics with a regional focus on the Middle East and North Africa. Esen's previous work was published in Political Research Quarterly, Democratization, Politics, Religion & Ideology and Turkish Studies.
