About Current Trends

Current Trends in Islamist Ideology

Current Trends in Islamist Ideology, a project of the Institute’s Center on Islam, Democracy, and the Future of the Muslim World, is edited by Hudson senior fellows Hillel Fradkin, Husain Haqqani, and Eric Brown, along with Hassan Mneimneh, Senior Transatlantic Fellow for MENA and the Islamic World at the German Marshall Fund.

Under the general direction of Hillel Fradkin, Hudson’s Center on Islam, Democracy, and the Future of the Muslim World also conducts a wide-ranging program of research and public conferences addressing political, religious, cultural, and intellectual developments affecting Islamic countries and Muslim-minority populations around the world—all in an effort to identify and promote moderate and democratic alternatives to sectarian radicalism. Additional information about the Center and its work is available by email.
