AbstractSince the terrorist attacks of September 11th, we can observe the trend to analyse what it is happening in the Arab world based on religious references which appears in social and political actors' discourses. Many experts have spent much energy looking for evidence of a relationship between what the Koran and later exegesis say and violent activism. In this context, Islamism is often confused with political violence. At the same time, Muslim people as a whole are perceived as Islamists. In this paper, we analyse some significant aspects of Islamism. We propose a definition of what Islamism is and then we discuss two main topics: the compatibility between Islamist agenda and democratic principles and the conception this agenda confer to women. Likewise, we present the main thesis that have interpreted the evolution of Islamism and its future. Finally, we make some considerations about the necessity to use the social sciences methodology for analysing political and social situation in the Arab world.
