About the theme:
There is a global rise in sectarian and religious conflicts. These conflicts have all taken shape along confessional divides in different regions of the world though their particular root cases are a result of complex historical, political and/or social circumstances. This conference seeks to assess these conflicts –particularly those taking place in the Middle East– from both local and global perspectives and in light of political movements espousing more extreme interpretations of religion, culture, and the West’s varied reactions.
On this important topic, our speakers Prof. Besma Momani (University of Waterloo), and Prof. Miloud Chennoufi (Canadian Forces College) will make an overlook of the situation before engaging in a discussion of more specific issues that have arisen in the past decades. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, where all will be welcome to participate.
