Film Screening: Journey into Europe: Islam, Immigration, and Identity
The current state of Islam in Europe, and Islam’s role in the development of European history and civilization, is a subject of constant debate. The conversation is often shaped by misinformation and mistrust, leaving many unsure of Islam’s place in the political and social future of the European continent.
Anthropologist Akbar Ahmed produced and directed Journey Into Europe: Islam, Immigration, and Identity to explore these questions and offer solutions for coexistence from the ground up. The film shares perspectives of some of Europe's most prominent figures, including presidents, prime ministers, archbishops, chief rabbis, grand muftis, heads of right-wing parties, as well as European citizens from a variety of backgrounds.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film's director, moderated by Georgetown professor Tamara Sonn.
Pizza will be served.
This event is cosponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs and the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.
