Islamism is a political ideology that is wrongly confused with Islam, which is a religion. As we know it today, Islamism falls into the same category as the antimodernist movements that have emerged in all areas of culture and civilization. This lecture will offer a genealogy of this ideology.
Miloud Chennoufi, professor and director of the Department of Security and International Affairs at the Canadian Forces College, also teaches the geopolitical history of the Middle East at Glendon College (york University).
