Details The aim of our study project is to explore the political ideologies and activities of the Muslim Brotherhoods in Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Kuwait, Palestine and Algeria and their international networks by field researches and analyses of Arabic primary sources. Referring to the political rises and declines of the MBs after the 'Arab Spring,' we made empirical studies and demonstrated that they tried to maintain the cooperative relations while each MB kept its own independence.
