February 24, 2016. To mark the launch of Muslim Minority - State Relations: Violence, Integration and Policy, Dr Robert Mason will discuss the most pertinent lessons from Europe, Africa and Asia in his talk at ACMCU, Georgetown University, on 24 February 2016. His frame of reference is taken from work with leading scholars on case studies as diverse as the UK, Austria, Kenya, Russia, Sri Lanka and Myanmar, each highlighting areas of either best practice in state - Muslim community relations or contentious issues which have yet to be resolved. His remarks are made within the context of often ill-informed or divisive responses to violent Islamist attacks, the international refugee crisis driven by ongoing conflict in the Middle East, and the alleged 'Islamization' of western societies propagated by some leading political and media figures and far-right groups.
