Conference “Islam and Democracy : Exploring the Strategies of Political Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood’s Contribution” — The Cordoba Foundation, Londres (Royaume-Uni), 12/02/2015

 

ISLAM AND DEMOCRACY:
Exploring the Strategies of Political Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood’s Contribution 

On the back of a trending upsurge in interest and critique of political Islam following the Arab Spring, and particularly the Muslim Brotherhood, this timely conference seeks to unpick the nature and manifestation of political Islam in Britain today. The conference will principally explore whether the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood is congruent with the values and principles of democracy; the orientation of the Brotherhood towards violence, extremism and radicalisation in Britain and abroad; the repressive measures targeting the group globally, and the increasing pressure placed on the political space by more extremist actors such as al-Qa’ida and ISIS.
