Islam and Liberal Democracy: How Tradition Matters

This seminar gathered leading scholars to address how tradition matters in Islamic political thought today. The wide-ranging discussion considered how the Islamic tradition—including the Qur'an, the life and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, and diverse legal schools—relates to the idea of a liberal democratic state.
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.
