Georgetown Hosts Panel on Rethinking Muslim-West Relations

WHO:
  • John Esposito, professor and founding director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University;
  • Rashad Hussain, U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference;
  • Deborah Amos, foreign correspondent for NPR; and
  • Mohamed Younis, senior analyst at the Abu Dhabi Gallup Center.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Sarah Joseph, CEO and editor of Emel Magazine.
WHAT:
The Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University is hosting a high-level panel discussion to discuss the future of Muslim-West relations.
 
The calls for democracy and freedom sweeping much of the Arab world and the demise of Osama Bin Laden are reshaping in profound ways the dynamics between the “Muslim world” and the “West”. This discussion seeks to address what impact these events will have on perceptions of Muslims in the U.S. and Europe and whether they will lead to a more accurate understanding of Islam and more positive representations of Muslims.
