Transnational Networks of Salafi Clerics: Contestation and Cooperation

  • Ismail, Raihan (Primary Investigator)

    Project Details

    Description

    This project aims to provide the most comprehensive examination to date of the transnational networks of the ultra-orthodox Salafi Sunni Muslim clerics. The project expects to generate new knowledge in the areas of Islamic studies and religion and society by engaging in various approaches to studying transnational religious actors. This project offers new insights on the workings of Salafi clerical networks, and how these clerics attempt to influence and operate in Muslim societies. Since Salafism is blamed for providing the ideological foundations for extremism, the project provides significant benefits to the scholarly community as well as for policy makers, intelligence professionals and the general public.
