Conversations With History: Islam and the Secular State

Host Harry Kreisler welcomes legal philosopher Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im, Candler Professor of Law at Emory University, to discuss the challenges facing Muslims as they seek to reconcile tradition and modernity. Professor An-Na'im reflects on his intellectual journey and lessons of his own career as a scholar, advocate and activist and discusses the importance of Islamic reform which negotiates notions of human rights, constitutionalism, and citizenship while respecting tradition and culture.
