Islamist political parties are flourishing across the Arab world, and
their increasingly mainstream influence appears unlikely to diminish in
the near future. To explore the myriad dimensions of Islamist politics,
Professor Nathan Brown of George Washington University and Professor Mohammed Hafez of the Naval Postgraduate School will hold a public discussion focused on these influential religio-political movements.

Professor Brown will examine Islamist movements in the Arab world and how the decision to participate in the electoral process affects them organizationally and ideologically, and Professor Hafez will discuss takfir (excommunication in Islam) and the internal debates over Muslim against Muslim violence.
