Middle East Law and Governance
This introduction leads into the Special Issue “Parliaments in the Middle East and North Africa: A Struggle for Relevance.” Parliaments in the Arab world have hardly been considered to be relevant institutions during the decades of authoritarianism in the post-independence era. If at all, they were of importance as a strategic element in the power-saving strategies of regimes.

The struggle of Arab parliaments to assert their place as strong and relevant legislative institutions in the context of the post-2011 developments, independent from exorbitant interference on the part of the executive, may appear to mirror the labors of Sisyphus, the doomed man from Greek mythology who repeatedly pushed his rock up a hill for eternity. The articles in this special issue have examined, and in so doing elucidated, the nature of the struggles faced by parliaments in the Arab world with particular attention towards Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia.

Routledge Handbook on Contemporary Egypt
While Egypt’s government institutions are formally independent, they in fact operate under the directives of the “deep state.” The Egyptian Armed Forces (EAF) in particular intervene in the country’s governance whenever generals deem it necessary. This chapter understands the EAF as the “invisible hand” behind the country’s central institutions, using them as “fingers” to steer daily politics.

This article is part of the Special Issue “Parliaments in the Middle East and North Africa: A Struggle for Relevance.” Tunisia’s parliament has undergone a remarkable internal transformation process since 2011, from a formerly mostly irrelevant institution to an influential locus of policy-making. This successful progress notwithstanding, the parliament’s transformation to a democratic assembly has not been fully concluded yet.

In the Euro-Mediterranean region, several international parliamentary initiatives are engaged in parliamentary diplomacy and cooperation. Besides the European Parliament, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union for the Mediterranean (PA-UfM) and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) cross the shores.

Jordan has long been one of the highest recipients of US and European “democracy promotion” funding. Severe crackdowns on domestic opposition forces in 2020 and during the royal feud in April 2021, however, have revealed just how flimsy the regime’s commitments to democracy remain, and the extent to which the often celebrated stability of the country remains premised on coercion and oppression. In his book Promoting Democracy, Reinforcing Authoritarianism (Cambridge University Press, 2019), Benjamin Schuetze investigates what external “democracy promoters” actually do in Jordan.

Democracy and Autocracy - The International Aftermath of the Arab Spring
The United States features prominently in the authors’ exchange between Dana El Kurd and Benjamin Schuetze. Dana El Kurd’s book, Polarized and Demobilized: Legacies of Authoritarianism in Palestine, is a study of international involvement in Palestinian politics after the Oslo Accords. She demonstrates how the U.S. supported local elites whose interests diverged from those of the population. This led to increased authoritarianism and the polarization and demobilization of Palestinian society.

Appearing against the backdrop of Jordan's remarkable levels of authoritarian stability and accounting for Jordan being one of the highest recipients of US and European 'democracy promotion' funding, Promoting Democracy, Reinforcing Authoritarianism examines what external 'democracy promoters' actually do when they promote democracy.

Political Geography
The proliferation of civic demands for democratisation through material infrastructures, including those pertaining to energy, water, currency, and transport, indicates a desire to transform how societal needs are provided, and how technologies of provision might act as ‘loci of hope’ (Bernardo, 2010) for achieving a more desirable and equitable future (Dawson, 2020).

Sub-Saharan African societies are widely seen as highly religious. However, at least 30 million Sub-Saharan Africans identify themselves as “religious nones” and are supposedly not affiliated with any religious tradition. While research interest in religious nones has been growing in the United States, Canada, and Western Europe, there is a dearth of literature on nones in Sub-Saharan Africa. In this paper, we offer an overview of this understudied subject and dwell on key challenges for studying African nones, including preconceived notions and structural oppositions.

How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected refugees and their protection? To respond to this question, we conducted a study using a qualitative questionnaire in six countries in East Africa, Southern Africa and West Africa, namely Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe. In this paper, we explore the information provided by the 90 respondents and focus on three main areas. We first address vulnerable groups and the new, additional and prolonged challenges, as well as potential tensions among refugees and between refugees and host communities due to the pandemic.

Die Restitutionsdebatte gewinnt an Brisanz. Berlin, die alte Kolonialmetropole, und „ihr“ Humboldt-Forum ziehen viel Aufmerksamkeit auf sich. Einer der Gründe für diese Anziehungskraft ist die in Gang gekommene Beschäftigung mit den Verbrechen der Kolonialmacht Deutschland. Ursprünglich sollte mit dem Haus lediglich die Berliner Museumslandschaft der „Weltkulturen“ ergänzt, die über Jahrhunderte gesammelten Schätze im Besitz der Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz im Herzen Berlins ausgestellt werden. Aber das erscheint vielen nicht mehr als legitim.
