The Center for the Study of Islam Democracy

Special Events

The activities of the Center for the Study of Islam & Democracy include the following:

  • Seminars and lectures at mosques, churches and think tanks around the country by noted scholars and activists on Islam & Democracy.
  • International workshops on Islam & Democracy in Muslim countries.  To date, CSID has held several workshops, in Morocco, Egypt, Algeria, Nigeria, Turkey, Jordan, and Yemen. These workshops were groundbreaking in their success in bringing together a wide collection of political actors–Islamist as well as secularist–to discuss democracy in the Islamic world.
  • An annual academic conference on Islam and Democracy. CSID’s conferences bring together specialists, activists and policymakers to share ideas. Attendees and speakers have included high ranking government officials (e.g., Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Lorne Craner, Assistant Secretary of State for the Near East William Burns) and internationally renowned scholars (e.g., Fathi Osman, Tariq Ramadan, Khurshid Ahmed) and activists (e.g., Saad Eddin Ibrahim) from the Muslim world.
