Panel Discussion: Freedom of Religion and the Consequences of Politicizing Islam

The politicization of Islam, whether directed at Muslims in the U.S. or relations between the U.S. and  Muslim-majority countries, has taken on increased saliency in recent months. Panelists will discuss various issues related to this including: the status of religious freedom in the U.S. legal system, the political and discursive challenge around defending Islam in the current climate, and the opportunities and pitfalls of coalition building around these issues. They will also offer some comparative examples of social integration of Muslim communities in the western world.
