Research Interests for Alexander Kirshner

Research Interests:

My research cuts across democratic theory, comparative politics and constitutional law. I have just completed a book investigating the paradoxical ethical dilemmas raised by antidemocratic opposition to democratic government (forthcoming-Yale University Press). My current research explores the intellectual history and practice of legitimate opposition and the competition between religious parties in contemporary Egypt and Tunisia

Keywords:
