The Center for Arab Unity Studies published the book Social Movements and Political Parties: Political Islam in Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco by researcher Mohammad Ramadan Bashandy.

This book aims to study the relationship between social movements and the political parties emerging from them, by applying it to the Egyptian Freedom and Justice, Tunisian Ennahdha, and Moroccan Justice and Development parties. It focuses on a special type of parties that emerged at the initiative of social movements, and investigates the reasons for their varying outcomes despite their similarity ideologically, in terms of the way they were created, and their involvement in a conflictual relationship with political systems. This book contributes to consolidating the concept of the Social Movement Party, and analyzes the reasons why the movement parties differ intellectually even though they belong to the intellectual framework of the Muslim Brotherhood. It also reveals the difference in organizational models depending on the extent to which they accept the idea of ​​functional separation.

The book gains its importance from its attempt to explain the factors that push social movements to establish political parties, and to study a different type of party, define it, and determine its characteristics, which is useful in predicting the future behavior of similar parties. In addition to explaining the different organizational patterns of the relationship between social movements and the parties that emerged from within them. In addition to describing the interaction between social movements and parties, and its impact on the ability of those parties to develop institutionally.
