Tamara van der Does (Department of Sociology and Department of Statistics, IUB) examines Muslim men living in predominantly Muslim Middle Eastern and North African countries and their overcompensation of support for more traditional gender attitudes, as a result of living under different conditions of insecurity. Using two waves of the Arab Barometer data, she investigates if Islamic religiosity mediates this relationship and how women differ in their results. What interesting patterns emerge? Is there change in the influence of religiosity on gender with the rise of the Arab Spring unrest?
