(p.259) 8 Conclusions
Religion and Democratization

Michael D. Driessen

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by revisiting the contributions of the book and its attempt to advance research on religion and democratization. It argues that the book’s theory of religiously friendly democratization ought to help scholars better understand and interpret the contemporary dynamics of religion, state and democracy in the Middle East and elsewhere today. The chapter then offers several observations about the limits of comparison between political Islam and political Catholicism and draws on these observations to outline several avenues for future research.

Keywords:   political Islam, political Catholicism, public religion, religious pluralism, comparative Muslim religiosities
