The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), a member of College of Islamic Studies (CIS) in Hamad Bin Khalifa University, cordially invites you to its upcoming public lecture titled:
"The State and Public Morality in Muslim Contexts: Tensions, Norms and Models"
It will take place on Monday, May 9, 2022 from 6-8 PM, at the Auditorium of the College of Islamic Studies, Doha, Qatar.
This public lecture aims to provide the general public with key notions, tensions and possible models of the moralising state in Muslim contexts. We focus on the specificities of the state’s role in public morality taking into account the contemporary views of Islamic ethics and the interactionist nature of states and religion in the Muslim world (as opposed to the confrontational relationship between state and religion in Western secular contexts). The countries selected for illustration are Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia.
