“The Challenges of Islam and Democracy”
Updated: Wednesday, November 8, 2006 at 7:30-9pm (Bond Chapel,
1050 E. 59th Street). In recent years, many policymakers and critics have questioned whether Islam and democracy can be compatible in light of the increasing global influence of radical Islam. Anwar Ibrahim is the Former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, a moderate democracy in Southeast Asia with a largely Muslim population. Ibrahim will engage the University of Chicago community in an active conversation about on the relationship of Islam and democracy, particularly as they relate to U.S. foreign policy objectives. The moderator of this evening event will be Dr. Alison Boden, Dean of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel and Senior Lecturer in the Divinity School and the College at the University of Chicago. The event will be followed by audience questions and a free reception. Co-sponsored by the Norman Wait Harris Fund of the Center for International Studies.
