Progressive Arab Voices on Islamic Reform


How do we explain the appeal of groups like ISIS to Muslim believers? Where are the borderlines between their Islam and that of other Muslims? Who can give us answers to this?

This conference brings together leading Arab Muslim thinkers who provide cutting-edge analysis of what is powering Islamic radicalism. Their courageous diagnosis for reform goes far beyond what we are accustomed to hear.

Speakers include Hassan Mneimneh (Lebanon/USA), Nabil al-Haidari (Iraq), Iqbal al-Gharbi (Tunisia), Babikir Faisal (Sudan) and Soheib Bencheikh (Algeria/ France).


The event coincides with the launch of a new publication: Reforming Islam: Progressive Voices from the Arab Muslim World featuring penetrating essays from the authors of the Almuslih website www.almuslih.orgThis is an all-day event, lunch will be served at the conference.



The event is free but requires registration.
