Symposium on the State of West-Islamic Dialogue

Georgetown University hosted an all-day symposium that brought together international thought leaders and public figures to address West-Islamic dialogue in its religious, political, and social dimensions. The symposium was convened in the context of the World Economic Forum's planned "Islam and the West: Annual Report on the State of Dialogue." The report, a collaborative effort between the World Economic Forum and Georgetown University, was presented at the forum's annual meeting in Davos in January 2008.
The symposium was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs and the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.
