Islamic fundamentalism and the internet in Egypt: CSI sparks debate
Posted by civilsocietyindex on February 15, 2010
In the 2003-2006 phase of implementation, the Civil Society Index was implemented in Egypt.
Now, research and discussion has emerged on the role that the internet plays in Egyptian civil society, with a specific focus on the case of the Muslim Brotherhood. The research uses as its starting point the findings of the CSI in Egypt in the 2003-2006 phase.
The research paper, titled “Egypt’s Changing Civil Society: The Muslim Brotherhood and New Media”, is available on the website of Ikhwan Scope. Ikwhan Scope describes itself, on its website, as “an independent Muslim Progressive and moderate non-profit site, concentrating mainly on the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement” which “hopes to construct a foundation in which all references about the movement are available to those who are interested in Islam and Islamic movements”.
