Resident Seminar on Islam and Migration
In February 2018 CTI held a seminar on Islam and migration, with presentations by legal scholars Anver Emon (University of Toronto, Canada) and Urfan Khaliq (Cardiff University, UK), as well as by Luis Lopez Farjeat (Universidad Panamericana, México), a specialist on medieval Islamic philosophy. The expertise of these leading scholars in Islamic jurisprudence and philosophy, and in international law, enriched the work being undertaken by the members of CTI's resident seminar on religion and migration.
