Arabic Political Discourse in Transition

This chapter examines the Islamic parties discourse during and post Arab Spring. The landslide victory of most Islamic parties in post Arab Spring elections in Egypt and Tunisia took many observers by surprise and revealed the popularity of the parties in these countries. The study of their discourse offers a good understanding of the dialectical relationship between these parties and the wider public. It also examines their discourses in the context of conflict and social change. The focus in this chapter is on Al-Nahda and the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) in Tunisia and Egypt respectively. A CDA approach, mainly Fairclough’s framework of language and social change, has been adopted for the analysis of the data, which has been collected from speeches, statements and slogans made by leaders of the two parties.

Keywords:   Arabic Islamic Political Discourse, Al-Nahda Party, Freedom and Justice Party, Discourse and Ideology, Transition in Islamic Parties Discourse, Shift in Political Strategies, Textual Analysis of Islamic Political Discourse
