Title Muslim Brotherhood and the Perception of Democracy.
Publication Date Dec 2012
Media Count 117p
Personal Author E. Leckie
Abstract The objective of this thesis is to assess the Muslim Brotherhood's prospects to facilitate a democratic transition within Egypt. Numerous studies have examined the Muslim Brotherhood's political ideology as a means to objectively assess its consistency with democracy. However, to date there has been no comparative subjective study to assess the Muslim Brotherhood's capacity to facilitate democracy within Egypt. This thesis will attempt to fill that gap by subjectively measuring the Muslim Brotherhood's democratic intentions as perceived by other important actors within the Egyptian polity since the 2012 Egyptian Presidential Election. Political stakeholders' perceptions of the Muslim Brotherhood's democratic capacity and intent are critically important in assessing the likelihood of Egypt's transition to democracy. To that end, the major research question of this thesis paper is the following: What is the current perception of the Muslim Brotherhood's commitment to democratic compromise within the Egyptian polity.
