In seiner prägnanten examine argumentiert Cihan Tu?al, dass die Probleme dieses Modells des islamischen Liberalismus viel tiefer gehen als Erdogans zunehmender Autoritarismus. Sie sind in einer gewollten Ehe zwischen Islam, Demokratie und einer neoliberalen Wirtschaft inhärent. Und dieses Modell kann nur als eine Antwort auf regionale Politik – insbesondere als Antwort auf das »iranische Modell« – verstanden werden.
Das türkische Modell ist in der Türkei selbst gescheitert, und die Dynamiken der arabischen Welt erschweren es zunehmend, es als politische Schablone zu exportieren. Tugals meisterhafte examine des Untergangs des islamischen Liberalismus bezieht sowohl Ägypten als auch Tunesien mit ein, die noch vor Kurzem als die aussichtsreichsten Kandidaten für solch ein Modell galten, und liefert eine bahnbrechende Untersuchung der dort herrschenden Regime und islamistischen Bewegungen sowie einen Bericht über die Systeme in der Türkei und im Iran, der zu einem Pradigmenwechsel führen wird.
