Topics in Development - Muslim Politics in India, Iran, Pakistan & Indonesia
The course offers an analysis of Muslim politics in India, Pakistan, Iran and Indonesia since the colonial era. It highlights the nexus between state- and nation-building processes and Islam. How have Islamic movements and elites shaped local struggles for self-determination and subsequent normative debates about the state and political order? How have independent states accommodated, regulated and managed religion? And how have religious politics in turn shaped prospects for democratization in Pakistan and Iran, and challenges to democratic consolidation in India and Indonesia?
