Is Islam compatible with democracy? Despite the seemingly endless debate on this issue. Moataz Fattah’s study is a rare investigation of actual Muslim beliefs about democracy across numerous and diverse Islamic societies.

Fattah’s survey analysis of more than 31.000 Muslims in 34 countries (including 3 countries in which Muslims live as minorities), enhanced by focus group discussions, offers a nuanced portrait of the link between Islam and democracy. His work advances discussion on this critical topic to a new, more sophisticated level.
