Islam & Politics:  Past, Present & Future

Across the Muslim world, religion plays an increasingly prominent role in politics.  Is there something inherent in Islam that lends itself to this politicisation, and what role should the faith play in modernising governments in the Muslim world?  A scholar of Islamic law and a leading Middle Eastern media editor come together for what promises to be a fascinating panel discussion

  • Jonathan A C Brown : Chair of Islamic Civilization at Georgetown University, and the Editor-in-Chief of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Law
  • Wadah Khanfar : President of Al Sharq Forum and Former Director-General of Al Jazeera, named by Foreign Policy as a Top 100 Global Thinker
