Muslims in Europe - Opportunities and Challenges

On Tuesday 24 May 2016, The University of Nottingham, in partnership with the Karimia Institute, hosted a lecture presented by Professor Akbar Ahmed, IBN Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies at the American University, Washington DC, and former High Commissioner of Pakistan to the UK.

The lecture was held in conjunction with the Karimia Institute's trust building project: 'A forum of mutual trust, peace and reconciliation in British society through better understanding of each other' led by Dr Musharraf Hussain, with support from Nottinghamshire Police, the city council, and the Crown Prosecution Service.

Professor Ahmed and Dr Hussain were joined by Dr Jon Hoover (Department of Theology & Religious Studies) and Professor Katharine Adeney (Department of Politics) at a press conference held to promote this initiative. Details of the press conference can be found on the Nottingham Post website.
