A View from the Middle East:

Is Turkey’s Justice and Development Party a future model for the Arab world?

The Justice and Development Party (AKP) is now engaged in a political struggle with the country’s secular establishment, and the outcome is unclear. Western governments had hoped the party’s leaders could create a model of governance for Islamic parties in the Arab world. But how does this play in the Arab world?

On May 15, The Century Foundation and the Heinrich Boell Foundation will host a panel discussion to examine the crisis the AKP now faces due to calls for its dissolution and how the AKP is viewed in the Arab world. This discussion will provide a rare opportunity to hear from important voices in the region.

· Ibrahim El-Houdaiby, Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt

Geneive Abdo, Fellow, The Century Foundation, and author of works on contemporary Islam
