Islam and Liberalism in Contemporary Society

The aim of this event series is to discuss the relationship between Islam and liberal democracy with Muslim and Muslim-born intellectuals (scholars, practitioners and activists) who adopt different approaches to the faith but are united by a firm commitment toward liberal democratic values and individual rights. Hosting both lectures and debates, the cycle will address various methodological and substantive issues in a captivating and accessible format, with the aim of countering stereotypes and showing the diversity within Islam to the larger public.
