Topic: Political

What is the difference between a democracy imposed by foreign powers and one developed locally, albeit within a political system dominated by religion?

The religion versus democracy debate has been remarkably enriched in Iran by new approaches of reformist thinkers to questions of rationality, secularism, constitutional rights and the state-religion relation. Iran's experiences provide readers with a better understanding of the potentials, difficulties, motives and limits pertaining to the process of democratisation in the modern Middle East.
