Session 3 – “Does Political Islam Have a Future?”

Part of MPAC’s Convention, “Celebrating 25 Years on the Road Less Traveled,” this session reviews global events shaping Muslim societies around the world, with a closer examination of how women and minorities are fairing. Renowned Georgetown University Professor Dr. John Esposito warned that authoritarianism will rise as a result of these movements failing in different countries. The other panelists, Dr. Hamid Mavani and Haroon Moghul, spoke on movements from the Middle East to Iran, and they highlighted the challenges facing those governments and Islamic movements.

The panel was moderated by Dr. Laila Al-Marayati, chairwoman of KinderUSA and the former presidential appointee to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
