The streets of Paris in flames; the most ancient democracy of all overturned by Brexit and incapable of guiding it towards a rational outcome; populist-held Italy tempted by the aspiration to dismantle the EU from within. What’s going on with European democracy, two months ahead of its key electoral appointment? Who and when allowed for such deterioration of its quality and effectiveness?
This volume presents a distinguished collection of essays by some of the leading social and political scientists and philosophers of our time, concerning a crucial contemporary issue: are Islam and democracy compatible and can we move past the ‘Islam vs. the West’ division towards new political pastures?
