Multicultural Europe: Secular, Post-Secular or Multifaith?
Roberts G08 David Davies Lecture Theatre |
Malet Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom
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.'
