Islam and Democratic Life

This research analyzes the cultural and institutional dynamics of Muslim societies both historically and in contemporary comparative context, with a particular focus on Iran and the broader Persian Gulf (led by Mozafar Banihashemi); and on Egypt and the broader MENA region (led by Soumia Dhar and Anwar Ouassini).

The Persian Gulf portion of this work was previously funded by the Middle East Program of the Cooperative Monitoring Center at Sandia National Laboratories; both portions are now done as independent dissertation research work.
