Islam and Democracy: An Obscure Relationship – Fatima Al-Samak

ISLAM AND DEMOCRACY: AN OBSCURE RELATIONSHIP

Democracy is determined by many different elements: culture, wealth, equalities, education, and some will say religion.

Religion as a determinant of democratic development has been extensively studied and many arguments have been presented supporting the claim that religion hinders democracy, while others are less convinced.

 Since Samule P. Huntington published his book, Clash of Civilization, there has been an increased focus on the relationship between Islam and democracy.

Huntington argued that the world order in the 20 th century has shifted into a clash between the West and the East, specifically between the West and Islam. He argues that this clash is highlighted by Muslim resistance to democratic development and modernity, which he attributes to the nature of the religion of Islam.

 Although Huntington is supported by many in this claim, he failed in providing a concrete, practical explanation for the lack of democracy in Muslim countries.

This essay will first analyze the arguments Huntington makes about Islam and democracy, second, it will discuss debates that oppose his claims, third, it will present empirical data to test his claims, and lastly, the essay will provide alternative explanations for the lack of democracy in the Muslim world. Defining Democracy

In any discussion concerning democracy it is essential to define the term and set a standard for what constitutes a democratic system.

 Scholars have not been subtle about their debate over the requirements of democracy, but nevertheless they have found some common ground in the institution of elections.

Citizen participation through elections is one of the most important indicators for a democratic system, but it is not sufficient because even authoritarian regimes may hold elections and feign democracy.
