Omtale Hezbollah, Islamist Politics, and International Society 2014
This book argues that the influence of international norms on Islamist politics goes beyond the surface of occasional and instrumental norm-conformist behavior by Islamist actors. More than that, international norms instill in the discourse and agency of Islamism the elaboration of conceptions of person and community as part of international society, instead of being its outcasts. By using the case of Lebanon's Hezbollah, the author draws the attention of the reader to how this Islamist movement has become more cognizant of the moral cogency of the norms of international society. The result is a precarious but innovative balance -mediated by a process of international socialization - in which a political actor defines and re-defines its Islamist identity by rethinking the idea of an allegedly "authentic" Islamic morality and the legitimacy of international norms.
