Authoritarian Containment

The value of a concept lies in large part in its ability to travel and explain dynamics across settings. Authoritarian regimes other than China have contained informal religious organizations. This chapter explains why, and to some extent how, the Mukhabarat has contained jihadi Salafists in post-Zarqawi Jordan, starting in 2006. Similarly, it accounts for why and how President Sadat contained the Muslim Brotherhood in 1970s Egypt, following the earlier regime’s attempt to eradicate the organization. As in China, state actors in these two cases contained informal religious groups, as their interests did not conflict with authoritarian regime resilience and the networks they were part of were incohesive.
