Revolutions, Political Islam, and the State Legacy in North Africa

 

This discussion focuses on the different layers that have governed the relationship between Islam and the modern nation-state in North Africa, highlighting the challenges facing the current governments as a result of the state legacy in North Africa. A particular attention is given to North Africa's relationship with the Sahel region.
