Panel study finds more tolerance, less extremism in Egypt and Turkey

a PSC In The News reference

"Egypt and Turkey Turning Away from Violent Extremism, Toward Religious Tolerance" - UMD's College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. 06/20/2017.

For more than a decade, PSC off-campus affiliate Mansoor Moaddel (University of Maryland) along with ISR's Arland Thornton, Ronald Inglehart, and Mark Tessler have participated in surveys conducted in Islamic nations on ideological and attitudinal characteristics. In a 2016 wave of an NSF-funded panel study conducted in Egypt and Turkey, results indicate several key trends, including an increase in support for liberal values, a decline in support for political Islam, a significant increase in preference for Western-style democratic government, and an increase in religious tolerance.
