Junction and Differentiation between Islamist and Nationalist Discourses: Case Study on Colonial Algeria


This study focuses on the Association of Algerian Ulama during the 1940s when it was expanding its influence as a social movement. It reveals that differences in political principals between the Association and contemporary nationalist movements brought about conflicts between the two in spite of the circumstances favorable toward cooperation. The study then discusses the factors that caused the cooperation or conflict between the Islamic movement and nationalism from an ideological point of view.
