Adiong, Nassef Manabilang, Raffaele Mauriello, and Deina Abdelkader., eds. (forthcoming, 2018). Islam in International Affairs: Politics and Paradigms. London, UK and New York, USA: Routledge.

This edited volume presents Islam as a conceptualization of ideas that affect people’s thinking and behavior in their capacity to relate with IR as both discipline and practice. Islam is not conceived and studied simply in theological terms, but analyzed from different viewpoints that engage with a wide range of analytical tools offered by the political sciences, social sciences, and Islamic Studies. The book challenges the established Western-based and defined epistemological and ontological foundations of the discipline, substantially contributing to worlding IR as a field of study and international relations as a field of practice by presenting and discussing a broad range of standpoints from within the Islamic civilization and the Muslim world, and offering critical analyses regarding current Muslim affairs. The different chapters provide perspectives on Islam’s relation with other non-Western IR outlooks by way of contrast and comparison with alternative understandings of IR from outside the West.


Abdelkader, Deina, Nassef Manabilang Adiong, and Raffaele Mauriello., eds. (2016). Islam and International Relations: Contributions to Theory and Practice. London, UK: Palgrave Macmillan.

The volume conceives of International Relations (IR) as an intellectual platform, and not as a unilateral project. It is in this vein of thought that each contributor explores Islamic contributions to the field, addressing the theories and practices of the Islamic civilization and of Muslim societies with regards to international affairs and to the discipline of IR. The inclusion of Muslim contributions is not meant to create an isolationist, judicious divide between what is Islamic and what is not. Instead, this study supports the inclusion of that knowledge as a building block in the field of IR. An outcome of the Co-IRIS team (International Relations and Islamic Studies Research Cohort), this study draws together the combined expertise of scholars of Islam in international affairs.


Adiong, Nassef Manabilang., ed. (2013). International Relations and Islam: Diverse Perspectives. Newcastle upon Tyne, UK: Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

The edited book presents the idea of finding a middle way or common ground of understanding between two bodies of knowledge conceived from two different hemispheres of the world; namely, International Relations (IR), a social science discipline conceived in the UK and the US (the West), and Islam or Islamic Studies which was conceived in the Arab world and developed in Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, Malaysia, Indonesia and many non-Arab countries. The book is divided into two main sections; the first being general perspectives from different backgrounds or cases concerning Islam. The second part specifically examines Turkey, offering various perspectives on the significance of this country and its democratic experience. The contributions included in this volume range from discussions on the Islamic veil and its associated stereotypes to an article on Islamic feminism. Other subjects discussed include the issues of Muslim integration, Turkey’s international relations, and Islam’s relationship with democracy, in addition to a biographical representation of the current Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey, Ahmet Davutoğlu, detailing his scholarship and its impact on Turkey’s foreign policy. This edited book is part of the mission-vision of the IR-IS Research Cohort, an e-networking community interested in advancing comparative research between International Relations and Islamic Studies.


Cayamodin, Jamel R. (2013). Political Culture: An Analytical Study of the Meranao Political Culture in Lanao del Sur, Philippines. Saarbrücken, Germany: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing.

This book analysing the Meranao political culture in Lanao del Sur Philippines is significant as it provides readers empirical data that describes the interactions of some dimensions of political culture. It explains thoroughly the twelve indicators of political participation vis-à-vis distrustful-efficacious theory, and how they are manifested across classes and statuses. Likewise, this book provides a necessary assistance and informative source for politicians and researchers on the nature of Meranao political culture and the impacts of its underlying dimensions upon the people, society and political system. It provides a guideline for the readers, thus lending help in theory building which contributes to the existing knowledge on political sociology as a component of human science.
