The text

Islam and Democracy: Toward Effective Citizenship

Islam and Democracy: Toward Effective Citizenship is an Arabic text that highlights the intersection between democratic principles and political tenets of Islam, while asking people to consider the shape democracy can take in Muslim societies.  

Through interactive workshops, community leaders used this text to facilitate discussion about civil society and Arab culture.

Street Law's Democracy for All text was used as a framework for Islam and Democracy: Toward Effective Citizenship.

This text is out of print. (ISBN 0-9774716-1-6)

Street Law's partner in the Connecting Islam and Democracy program was the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy. The two organizations worked directly with NGOs in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco to develop the text and implement the program.

This program was funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.
