OREWORD
 
CEPS is very happy to publish this book, since it fits perfectly with our newseries on Islam and the European Union. In 2007 CEPS published its firsttwo edited volumes on Islamic issues, one on the internal challenges forEuropean society represented by the new Muslim minorities,

and thesecond on political Islam in the Mediterranean Arab states and Turkey.

 The second of these books is close in subject matter but quitecomplementary to the present work, which was originally published inDutch by two Members of the European Parliament, Joost Lagendijk and Jan Marinus Wiersma. Both books look at democratic political parties of theMediterranean region with Islamist foundations or origins. They are bothinvestigating the ideologies, ambitions and views of Islamist parties thataspire to political power through the ballot box, and who reject violentpolitical action, radical Islamic ideology and authoritarianism. The earlierCEPS book was based on structured interviews with Muslim democratleaders of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria andTurkey. The present book delves into the same subject matter in fourcountries - Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco. Howeverthe method of the present book is quite different. The authors travelledextensively in the four countries and conducted interviews with a widerange of key individuals. The accounts they give are more free-flowingwith ideas, and often quite vivid in describing the context, from the coffeeshop in Bosnia to the Islamist leader’s apartment in Rabat.
