Church and state are supposedly separate worlds in Belgium and The Netherlands. But how does this separation work in real life? Can a Dutch or Belgian ‘citizen’ be a ‘Muslim’ at the same time? How do modern Muslims reconcile traditional laws with their daily life in a state that calls itself secular and neutral? And is a headscarf a political symbol or is the ban on headscarves symbolic politics? With, amongst others, Maurits Berger (University of Leiden) and Meryem Kanmaz (Mana). Moderator: Henriëtte Lauwerse (University of Sheffield).
This activity is part of The Erasmus Year and the student project deBuren univerCity. Everybody is welcome. We will serve cake and coffee.
