The Islamist Impasse

The Islamist Impasse

by Ibrahim Karawan
     
 

In this study, Ibrahim A. Karawan argues that Islamist groups have stagnated in the face of fragmentation, political over-extension, effective state strategies and the poor performance of self-proclaimed Islamic regimes. As a result, Islamists are likely to remain a relevant opposition force, but their influence will probably not be decisive.
