Abstract:

The landscape of this paper is laid out as follows. First the paper will begin with a brief discussion of what Civil Society is and how it is theoretically related to democracy and the state as well as dispelling myths about this relationship between civil society and democracy. In the broader context of this initial discussion a brief discussion of how civil society can be established will be presented. Second, the paper will discuss the uses and misuses (more importantly the misuses) of the concept of civil society as applied by the social sciences in the study of Middle Eastern and North African countries. In doing so, I will use Iran and Egypt as a case study to present where civil society was “sighted”. Finally, the paper will conclude with asking whether civil society as a concept is useful in helping to determine the nature of state-societal relationships in Iran and Egypt and the broader Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
