Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Tariq Ramadan
Chair: Dr Effie Fokas
Tariq Ramadan’s latest book, What I Believe, lays out the basic ideas he stands for in clear and accessible prose. He describes the book as a work of clarification, directed at ordinary citizens, politicians, journalist and others who are curious (or sceptical) about his positions. Aware that that he is dealing with emotional issues, Ramadan tries to get past the barriers of prejudice and misunderstanding to speak directly, from the heart, to his Muslim and non-Muslim readers alike.
Tariq Ramadan is professor of Islamic studies at Oxford University, a visiting professor at Erasmus University and president of the European think tank European Muslim Network in Brussels.
This event is free and open to all however a ticket is required. One ticket per person can be requested from 10.00am on Wednesday 7 October.
