In this book Arab and Turkish scholars discuss the rising importance of the Muslim (or Islamist) democratic parties of the Arab Mediterranean states (Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia) and Turkey. The authors focus on the parties' differing ideologies and how their positions are relevant to the European Union's policies in the region. The book pays special attention to the progressive transformation of the Islamic parties' political stances as they become more established and as they gain control within their governments. Contributors include Robert Springborg (Middle East Institute of the School of Oriental & African Studies, London University), Emad Shahin (American University of Cairo and Harvard University), Senem Aydin (Free University of Brussels), Salam Kawakibi (independent researcher, formerly with the French Near-East Institute in Alep, Syria); Samir Amghar (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris), Amel Boubekeur (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris, and CEPS), Saladdin Al Jourschi (Tunisia expert), and Talal Atrissi (writer and researcher on the Middle East)."
