The Rise of the Fringe: Right Wing Populists, Islamist, and Politics in the UK


Published: Mar 05, 2013 by Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs
Authors: Pupcenoks, Juris; McCabe, Ryan

This paper examines the impact that radical right wing populist groups and hard-line Islamist groups have on each other and on political developments in the UK. In the UK, recent years have witnessed an emergence of a number of right-wing populist groups, notably the English Defense League. Such groups frequently see themselves in opposition to fringe conservative Islamist groups such as Islam4UK, a recent offshoot of the defunct Islamist group al-Muhajiroun.

Published: Mar 05, 2012 by Nationalism and Ethnic Politics
Authors: Pupcenoks, Juris

This article argues that American Arab-Muslim political mobilization in response to conflicts abroad is predominantly influenced by their ethnic divisions and sectarian cleavages rather than shared religious commonalities. The article provides an analysis of Detroit's Arab- Muslim reactions to the conflicts in the Middle East from 2001–2009.

Published: Mar 05, 2012 by Middle East Journal
Authors: Pupcenoks, Juris
Subjects: Middle East Studies

This article compares and contrasts democratic Islamization in Pakistan and Turkey, two countries where Islamic parties came to power through electoral means. Based on a comparative analysis of these experiences, this article will make the case that democratic Islamization can be best understood through a three-fold approach focusing on Islamization of educational systems, economies, and social policies.
