Andrew March Quoted in Al Jazeera Article

Andrew March, Professor of Political Science, is quoted in a profile of Rached Ghannouchi, the leader of Tunisia’s main opposition party and an ardent critic of President Kaid Saied, who has been ordered to be imprisoned pending trial on charges of incitement against state authorities. March says Ghannouchi drew inspiration from the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, as well as from Tunisian thinkers and regional philosophers such as Algerian Malik Bennabi. “Ghannouchi’s ideology cannot be simply limited to the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood, it is to a large extent because of Bennabi, who had a wider understanding of the concept of civilization – one that was not exclusive to Islam but that included other religions and cultures,” he says.
