Center for Study of Islam and Democracy to open office in Morocco

Morocco TIMES  10/14/2005 | 2:50 pm GMT 

The president of the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID), Radwan A.Masmoudi, said that the center will open an office soon in Morocco, reported MAP news agency.

Masmoudi told CSID Magazine “the Center will open two offices, one in Morocco and the second in Jordan, and launch a new network of democrats in the Arab world.” 

 

CSID, in cooperation with Street Law Inc, embarks on a new 16-month project called Connecting Islam and Democracy.  

 

The organisation will partner with community leaders in Morocco, Algeria, Jordan and Egypt to develop materials and strategies that show the connection between Islamic and Democratic principles.  

 

“The purpose of this network will be to share knowledge, experience, and information as well as to provide training to young democracy activists so that their voice and their organizations become better able to reach and attract the masses,” Masmoudi said.  

 

“Similarly, we are working on publishing a new textbook (in Arabic) that will be used to train over 2,000 people in Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, and Jordan on democracy and how it works,” he pointed out. 

 

CSID is a non-profit organization, based in Washington DC, dedicated to studying Islamic and democratic political thought and merging them into a modern Islamic democratic discourse. 

 

It was founded in March 1999 by diverse group of academicians, professionals and activists, both Muslim and non Muslim, from around the USA.
