Alatiyat, Ibtesam and Barari, Hassan.  Liberating Women with Islam?  The Islamists and Women's Issues in Jordan.  Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions 11:359-378 September-December 2010.
"The question of where Jordanian Islamists stand on women's rights has generated a great deal of attention over the past few years.  An analysis of recent shifts in gender relations and hierarchies within the Jordanian Islamic movement (namely the Muslim Brothers and their political wing the Islamic Action Front and the Islamic Centrist Party) reveals that over the past three decades their views on women's rights have shifted towards embracing a much wider and more visible participation of women in the public space and within the movement itself."-Abstract from Author.

"Since September 11, conversions to Islam have worried strategic analysts, as neophytes are usually considered to be more extremist than traditional Muslims.  From Asia to Africa, the issue is now a question that deserves commentary.  We have to distinguish (1) conversion from one religion to another, (2) 'internal' conversion (a 'born-again' phenomenon for Christians), and (3) the discovery of God, especially for animists in Africa or atheists and agnostics in the West.  When we consider these types together, the expansion of Islam in Africa remains mysterious, not only because its appeal would need further investigation to be fully understood, but also because it raises doubts on the reality of its growth."-Abstract from Author.

"Although Western states of France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, all share common beliefs, values, cultures and religious makeup; how they integrate their minority Muslim populations varies significantly.  While there are numerous explanations for this difference, this thesis looks at three specific areas where that difference may influence the population to radicalize: the history of immigration, government policies, and the ability to integrate within Western society."-Abstract.
