The Maldives Backtracking on Democracy: human rights violations, impunity, and increasing religious extremism. Other events...
The Maldives - a 100% Muslim country - transitioned to a democracy in 2008. The first democratically elected government, however, was unseated on February 7, 2012, just three years into its five-year term by elements of the military and the police. A civilian government has again come to power in November 2013. However, immense challenges remain with regard to upholding democratic values and the rule of law, protecting human rights, and eradicating the growing religious extremism (whose extreme end having links to groups such as Al-Qaeda and ISIS). Mr Fahmy will focus his discussions on these issues in the Maldives, which once seemed a promising Muslim democracy. In the wider context, Mr Fahmy’s discussions will also be relevant for those who are struggling to make sense of what is happening in Arab Spring countries such as Egypt.
Speaker(s) Mr. Imthiyaz Fahmy
