Tariq Ramadan is one of the most famous thinkers of modern Islam. In his theories he puts the emphasis on the participation and integration of Muslims in Europe.
In his lecture Tariq Ramadan will give a detailed analysis on the subject of the integration of Muslims in Western societies. What will the recent democratic revolutions in the Middle East bring about? Will it change the relationship between the Arabic World and the West and what does it mean for the millions of Muslims in Europe?
After the lecture Ramadan will be interviewed by Iman Lechkar, researcher at the KULeuven and member of the research centre for Interculturalism, Migration and Minorities. After the interview the audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions. Meryem Kanmaz, program coordinator at the expertise centre for Islamic Cultures in Flanders (MANA), will give a short introduction.
