Islam & Global Affairs Initiative

I am the director of the Islam and Global Affairs Initiative at the Munk School of Global Affairs. The initiative brings together an interdisciplinary network of scholars, in order to engage with the most provocative issues facing the modern Muslim world, such as the evolution of jihadist organizations in the Middle East and North Africa, the question of gender and sexuality in diverse Islamic societies, and the effect of refugee flows in provoking xenophobic backlashes in Europe and the United States. Every year, we host a series of public events at the Munk School, which bring together experts across sub-fields and disciplines. Check the Munk School events page for upcoming listings.
