Speaker information

Professor Tariq Modood, Professor of Sociology, Politics & Public Policy, University of Bristol

Some divisions around religion, especially the position of Muslims, are threatening to create long term divisions in Europe. In this lecture, Professor Modood will review some of the obstacles to the accommodation of religions, in particularly Islam, and outline some causes of optimism. He will characterise the current situation as a three-way contestation between: appeals to renewal of Christian identity; a further privatising of religion; and a multi-faith secularism.

Professor Albert Weale (UCL School of Public Policy) will act as respondent.

The event will be chaired by Professor Richard Bellamy, Director of the European Institute.

This lecture is the first event under this thematic strand 'Europe and Islam.'
