The course will address the evolution of Islamic political doctrine, with a focus on contemporary phenomena such as that of jihadism, salafism, political Islam, post-Islamism, and the relationship between oppositional Islamic parties and government across a range of settings. These themes will be analysed by looking at how local contexts, analysed through an historical lens, intersect with trans-regional phenomena triggered by the new media and migration. The students will thus acquire an advanced understanding of the relationship between Islam and politics in the contemporary MENA region.
