Islam, Identity, and Globalization

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Oxford University Professor Tariq Ramadan for a discussion of his new book, "What I Believe." Reflecting on the formative experiences of his life, Professor Ramadan
traces the influence of his family, his education in Western philosophy and Islamic studies, and the impact of his different careers including high school principal, philosopher, and Islamic scholar. He explains what
it means to be a religious reformer and characterizes his work as a bridge builder between the Islamic world and the West.  Articulating his commitment to universal principles and resistance to inequality, Ramadan analyzes the tensions facing Muslims in an era of globalization as they strive to be fully engaged as citizens committed to Western values. Professor Ramadan also discusses his perspective on women's rights and the controversy over the building of a mosque near the World Trade Center.
