Tuesday September 30th
7:00pm - 10:30am
A Symposium on Peace
Location: Augenstein Alumni Center

This conference brings together academics, practitioners, policy influencers, and Muslim thought leaders to discuss the potential strategic role of 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, and is especially interested in how this may apply in the war against al-Qaeda.

 The overarching aims of this conference are two-fold:

 •     To bring together an interdisciplinary group of experts, along with an interested public, to share their work, build partnerships, and construct “next steps.”

 •     To examine both the strengths and shortcomings of the counter-narrative initiative, as well as the ethical questions that are involved.
