 Islam and the West: Irreconcilable Differences?

N.B. This event is organised by IRIS. Please send any queries to Giles Game by email (below).

Islam and the West: Irreconcilable Differences?. So reads the motion which will be debated in the main hall on Wednesday the 9th of November.

Proposing will be Anne Marie Waters, activist and politician, and Alan Craig, campaigner and former candidate for London mayor; speaking for the opposition, Dr Muhammad al-Hussaini, theologian and counter-extremism expert, and Dr Michael Arnheim, barrister and author. Formal speeches will be followed by questions and contributions from the floor.

Must there be a dissonance between Western traditions and the Islamic faith? If so, how does this manifest itself? And if not, then have we in Britain reached a point where we need to say so?

These subjects have recently begun to enter the country’s political discourse. If you agree that they are important to our future life, come along to hear them thoughtfully and plainly discussed. And if you think you already know the answers to these questions, come along to challenge, and be challenged.

Tickets £4.50 (plus booking fee)

This event takes place in the Main Hall, which is accessible and has a hearing induction loop fitted.
