The Global Fate of the Ummah and Its Significance for Violence and Islam

Author: Jocelyne Cesari

June 4, 2024

This book chapter by Senior Fellow Jocelyne Cesari seeks to clarify the relationship between Islam and violence, emphasizing that Islam, more than any other religions, is suspected to be inherently violent. This assumption has been reinforced in the last three decades by repeated acts of political violence perpetrated in the name of Islam from the Middle East to Asia, Africa, and the West. It was published in Exiting Violence: The Role of Religion, co-edited by Research Fellow Debora Tonelli and Gerard Michael J. Mannion.
