Symposium on Peace, Islam, and Counter-narratives

A Symposium on Peace, Islam, and Counter-narratives

September 29-October 1.  Augenstein Alumni Center

 

This conference brings together academics, practitioners, policy influencers, and Muslim thought leaders to discuss the potential strategic role of the Islam in American security policy and initiatives. It focuses on the role of "counter-narratives," or the attempt to respond to the ideology of militant groups. It is especially interested in how this may apply in the war against al-Qaeda. The overarching aims of this conference are two-fold. First, to bring together an interdisciplinary group of experts - along with an interested public - to share their work, build partnerships, and construct "next steps." Second, to examine both the strengths and shortcomings of the counter-narrative initiative and the ethical questions that are involved.
