Religion and Democratization

Michael D. Driessen

Oxford University Press

This chapter tests the causal logics of the theory through an in-depth case study of religiously friendly democratization in Algeria between 1988 and 2012. It considers the historical backdrop to the democratization process and then analyzes the evolution of the political religious movement in Algeria, considering, in particular, the experience of Mafoud Nahnah’s Mouvement de la societé de la Paix(MSP) and Abdallah Djaballah’s parties of Ennahdaand Islah. It then considers how religiously friendly democratization has affected the religious life of contemporary Algeria, as indicated in the country’s evolving profile of religiosity and religious authority.

Keywords:   Algeria, Mafoud Nahnah, MSP, Djaballah, Ennahda, Islah
