    • Abstract:
      The article argues that the failure of political Islam in Turkey is correlated with the characteristics of the polity that are broadly undemocratic. Political Islam not only failed to propose a new narrative but produced the so-called New Turkey that displays familiar totalitarian features. The article examines the approaches political Islam used to assert its rule, namely, dewesternization, Islam's nationalization and instrumentalization, majoritarianism, empowering devout masses, and synergizing with the undemocratic culture.
