CMSS Seminar on Religion and Politics in the Maldives Other events...
The tiny Indian Ocean Muslim nation of the Maldives experienced a democratic transition in 2009. However, the country has been engulfed by a tumultuous politics. A dominant approach to understand its troubled politics is through the lens of religion. In this presentation, Azim Zahir will explain the larger transformations of Islam's relationship to politics in the country to explore its role or the lack of it in the country's political turmoil.

Azim Zahir is a final year PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia and works as a Research Assistant at the Centre for Muslim States and Societies, UWA. He has a Masters degree from the University of Sydney. His current research is on secularism, Islam and democracy in the Maldives and looks at how the implications of the research bear on prevailing thinking on Muslim politics. His previous research includes radicalisation in the Maldives.
