‘Islam in Today’s World’ Conference

Dr Husna Ahmad was invited by the Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme to attend the Islam in Today’s World conference at Lancaster House. A number of key figures were given a rare opportunity to come together and debate what Islam in Today’s World means for Europe, the Muslim World, and beyond.

This conference hoped that by bringing academics, religious leaders and policy makers into dialogue, there would be a downstream effect whereby the benefits of such an initiative would inform policy and thus reach the people and communities served and whose lives are most affected by these issues.

Other conference speakers included Tony Blair, David Cameron, Ruth Kelly, Emine Bozkurt, and Richard John Carew Chartres. Gordon Brown also gave an evening reception for the delegates.
