The academic objectives of this proposal were largely met, including the collection of a global database on Islamist political parties, which has informed scholarship published in the last two years and which will be published in the coming years. Extensive bibliographies of Islamist parties in more than 20 countries around the world were developed. Coded data collection on Islamist movement behavior, including protest and violence, was collected for 9 countries in the Arab world that were convulsed by political change during the Arab uprisings of 2011-­‐12. Much of the material developed during this grant period will also be used in a new book manuscript that I am drafting in 2016 on the strategic behavior of Islamist parties during and after the Arab uprisings in the Middle East.
