Amb. Ahmed to Present Journey into Europe at the World Affairs Council – DC on Tues. Mar. 13

DESCRIPTION

In today’s rapidly globalizing world, there are many political, social and cultural shifts taking place. For instance, the last decade has seen an increase in the population of Muslim immigrants in Europe. While many believe that this is a new and recent trend, there has been an historic presence of Islamic culture and influence in Europe for centuries. How has the history of Islam in Europe had an influence on European culture? Can an understanding of this history help address some of the issues that Europe is facing today?

Join the World Affairs Council-Washington, DC as we host Ambassador Akbar Ahmed, author of “Journey into Europe: Islam, Immigration and Identity” , to discuss the history of Islam in Europe and the effects of this history in the present day. Ambassador Ahmed is currently the Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies at American University in Washington, D.C.
