Noi e i Musulmani

24 October 2013. 
M Borrmans, Istituto Pontificio di Studi Arabi e Islamici. Roma.  

A comprehensive analysis of the major themes that dictate the contemporary debate between Muslims and Christians.  M Borrmans drew from a life of scholarly research and personal engagement to inter-faith dialogue in order to address the areas in which dialogue is ultimately the only way forward in order to avoid radicalisation and conflict. Mr Borrmans also highlighted the limits of the  'secular state', as exemplified by first and above by the French state, in the area of the citizens' right to hold and display their religious beliefs.
