A seminar with Professor Madawi Al-Rasheed, London School of Economics.
Professor Madawi Al-Rasheed introduces her latest book on intellectual development among Saudi Islamists. Ideas about civil and political rights, democracy, justice and careful application of Sharia are currently debated in a very repressive context. The lecture maps the intellectual and political outcome of a new Islamism, that combines longing for Islamic authenticity with modernism.
