In response to the growing strength of Islamist parties, the longstanding debate surrounding Islam and democracy is increasingly shifting its focus from theoretical issues to more immediate policy concerns. In the forthcoming July 2008 Journal of Democracy, a number of distinguished Middle East experts have written short essays offering their views of these parties. While no clear consensus emerges from these essays, they highlight the key points of controversy in assessing the implications of the rise of Islamist parties for the future of democracy in the region. The panel features four of the contributors to this Journal of Democracy symposium.
