The rise of Islamist environmentalism: why and how Islamists want to protect the environment

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy

The environmental policies and approaches of Islamist groups have received scant scholarly attention. While there is a huge body of literature regarding Islam and nature, we know very little about how Islamists view the environment and its components. In the era of globalization, however, Islamist groups have increasingly addressed environmental problems and have offered solutions accordingly. More and more Islamists talk about planting trees, protecting water supplies, and reducing pollution. The thesis focuses on the emergence of Islamist environmentalism as a new phenomenon that requires a scientific investigation.
