Abstract:The essays in this special edition of the 'Journal of North African Studies' engage with the potentiality of 'democratic knowledge'. The notion of a 'democratic knowledge turn' may not as yet be in full swing. A hint of it, nonetheless, is heralded by the Arab uprisings of 2011. There is no democracy without a cumulatively attained theoretical and practical 'toolkit' of democratic knowledge; and for democratic knowledge to appeal to the arduous, long and complex process of engineering democratisation it must have didactic application and/or potentiality. Contributions: Discoursing 'democratic knowledge' & knowledge production in North Africa (Larbi Sadiki); Maghreb, European neighbour, or Barbary Coast: constructivism in North Africa (Laurence Whitehead); Towards a 'democratic knowledge' turn? Knowledge production in the age of the Arab Spring (Larbi Sadiki); Traditions of governance in North Africa (George Joffé); The external dimension of Libya's troubled transition: the international community and 'democratic knowledge' transfer (Mieczyslaw P. Boduszynski); Democratisation as a learning process: the case of Morocco (Mohamed El Hachimi); Salafism, liberalism, and democratic learning in Tunisia (Francesco Cavatorta); Protests, Islamism and the waning prospect of revolution in Egypt (Mohammed Moussa); Do Tunisian Secular Civil Society Organisations demonstrate a process of democratic learning? (Alexander Peter Martin). [ASC Leiden abstract]
