Religion and Politics in the Egyptian Spring: the Emerging Role of Women
Shaymaa Reyad, Humphrey International Fellowship Program
10:45 - 12:00 P.M. Morning Workshop Sessions (Augsburg College)
Global Studies Day March 3 2012 Saturday
The growing salience of religion today is deepening the political significance of religious freedom as a universal human right and a source of social and political stability. Hence, focusing on a religious perspective to define the ethical and political leadership during the Egyptian revolution is a crucial to understanding how the revolution has succeeded. Many stories demonstrate how peace is very difficult to achieve without faith and belief. This workshop will share those stories as a price of peace.
