Fall Colloquium 2015
October 2, 2015 - October 3, 2015
Confronting Religious Violence
The Institute for Contesting Religious Violence invites scholars to participate in a two day Colloquium to investigate religiously motivated violence. The Colloquium’s roundtable discussions shall include various religious, scholarly and political enquiries that look at the history of co-existence of different religions in the Middle-East, Africa and Asia. The Colloquium is particularly focused on the current crisis in Iraq and Syria. Killings of a massive number of innocent people in Syria and Iraq by ISIS and the alarming increase of the refugees seeking safety in the surrounding countries have shocked the whole world.
We hope this scholarly endeavor will lead to policy-making and advocacy, producing well-informed actions.
