The New Political Islam: Human Rights, Democracy and Justice


After September 11, Islamophobic approaches in society have become more widespread, and have been observed to appear more regularly. However, Western intellectuals have worked to maintain objectivity in their studies, which may contribute to eradicating this unfair perception. The New Political Islam, a study that introduces and models such an approach to a certain extent, is predicated upon the basic idea that Islamists have localized and transferred certain global norms into their societies today, and therefore function as ‘glocalizers:’ the author considers that following such developments as September 11, the social media revolution and the Arab Spring, norms such as human rights, democracy, and justice have become ‘glocalized,’ which are thought to be adopted from the global lexicon and contingencies of the local environments where they are being implemented.
