Registration form (SEMI-)PUBLIC STUDY DAY 'ISLAM AND THE STATE'

The state remains contested in Muslim-majority countries and in Europe in relation to Muslim minorities.
By looking at the country of origin of many migrants in both Morocco and Lebanon, a Middle Eastern country consisting entirely of minorities and comparing that to migrant communities in Belgium and the Netherlands, this study day focusses on the production, reception and application of ideas on Islam and the state in various settings, concentrating on both theory and practice.
Program:
12.00-13.30: Workshop 1: Islam and the State in Lebanon
13.30-14.30: Lunch break
14.30-16.00: Workshop 2: Islam and the State in Morocco
16.00-16.30: Coffee break
16.30-18.00: Public lecture: Moroccan-Belgian and Moroccan-Dutch Minorities

Since we would like to encourage students and other interested people who live in The Netherlands to take part in this study day, we made sure the program starts at 12.00 and ends at 18.00 hours, so you can take a return train from The Netherlands to Antwerp on May 12th.
