Political Islam has an especially strong foothold in poor and un-free countries. In public discussion on religion and democracy this often leads to the (mis)perception that Islam is itself a barrier to economic development and political freedom.

In the report Islam – A barrier to freedom in the name of God?  Eli Göndör asks whether it is the religion of Islam or the political structures in the countries in question that is impinging on their political freedom and economic development.
