Noah Feldman Explains Why New Institutions Will Fail in Islamic States

By: Jaime Neely - Published: Jan 21, 2012 • References: thelavinagency and youtu.be
Noah Feldman is a professor of law and one of America's most respected academics when it comes to politics, religion and law in the Middle East. In this speech, he discusses the likelihood of Islamic states experiencing success as they usher in new political institutions and government arrangements.

While Noah Feldman expresses his genuine hope for Islamic states to enter into a period of peace, growth and sustainability, he is extremely wary of their ability to take what's been put on paper and actually make it a reality. He predicts failure only because the act of delivering good government in Islamic culture is the equivalent to inventing new institutions, something he believes to be the hardest accomplishment to achieve in political science.
