TAREK MASOUD (Harvard) and ZAKIA SALIME (Rutgers) discuss religion and politics in the MENA region. Moderated by SA’ED ATSHAN (Emory).
THE RISE OF ISLAMIZATION HAS HAD ENORMOUS IMPACTS on the political and social landscapes of Egypt, Morocco, and the broader Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. TAREK MASOUD
and ZAKIA SALIME
will address the complexity of these impacts across a varied region. How are Islamic and Islamist social movements and political parties positioning themselves within their national contexts? How do the various movements relate to each other across the MENA region? What are their prospects for bolstering- or undermining pluralism in terms of gender equality, political diversity, and religious tolerance? Moderated by SA’ED ATSHAN
Presented in partnership with the MIDDLE EAST CENTER.
