Third in the Series of Reconciliation Lectures

    Exploring Muslim Perspectives of Reconciliation

    In the light of increasing awareness of Islamic thought, practice, and theology, a panel will explore the concept of reconciliation from Muslim perspectives. Does the concept have the same meaning in Islamic theology as it does in Christian theology? What can Muslim religious leaders and activists contribute to the politics of reconciliation in twenty-first century conflicts?
