The Rise of the East-West Tension and Its Impact on Muslim Countries: Rethinking International Relations Through the Islamic Perspective
In this Islam and Civilisational Talk Series, globally renowned political scientist and expert Dr. Louay M. Safi, currently a professor of political science and Islamic thought at Hamad bin Khalifa University's Faculty of Islamic Studies (HBKU), will speak on The Rise of the East-West Tension and Its Impact on Muslim Countries. As a prominent scholar in the fields of social and political development, democracy, human rights, as well as Islam and modernity, Dr Louay Safi’s talk may cover a variety of subjects, such as finding the best expression of Muslim thought and societies that is best suited for the modern context, addressing the mutual misinterpretations between the East and West—which has caused tension between the two worlds, as well as identifying potential impediments to mutual understanding across the cultural and civilisational divide. Furthermore, the discussion will address the issue of establishing a common ground and choosing the path of moderation, which remains a critical, continuing endeavour.
