The Clash of Civilizations Revisited

25 February 2014 | Seminar

Staff and students are invited to participate in the third religion, politics and development seminar, 'The Clash of Civilizations Revisited'.

Twenty years ago Samuel Huntington controversially predicted that future world politics would be shaped by a ‘Clash of Civilisations’. He proposed that cultural and religious differences would be an ongoing source of conflict in the post-Cold War era. This seminar revisits some of the themes raised by Huntingdon and explores relationships between politics, religion, culture, inequalities and social action


Speakers

Graeme A.M. Davies: 'Clash of Civilisations or Democratic Peace?- Attitudes towards Islam and Support for War'

Al McFadyen: 'Religion, culture and child sexual exploitation'

Mel Prideaux: 'Which comes first interfaith dialogue or multi faith social action?'
