ON-Lion Letter

How has the persecution of Muslim minorities affected their well-being in Europe and North America, the overall health of Muslim-majority nations, and the growth of violent Islamist extremism?  Are Muslim minorities developing theologies that can bolster religious freedom, stable democracy, and economic growth, as well as undermine violent Islamist extremism?

On December 15, the Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs will explore these questions at a day-long conference, "Muslim Minorities and Religious Freedom:  A Public Dialogue."  It will feature four panels of experts, as well as a lunchtime keynote conversation between Bradley Prize recipient and Princeton University Prof. Robert P. George, Georgetown Prof. John L. Esposito, and Shaykh Hamza Yusuf of Zaytuna College.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports the Religious Freedom Project.  The event is being held in cooperation with Baylor University's Institute for Studies of Religion.
