TUESDAY 4th DECEMBER 2018: Ghazi al Gosaibi Memorial Lecture

Our next event will be the annual Ghazi al Gosaibi Memorial Lecture which will this year be given by Dr. Saud al Sarhan.

Venue: Arab–British Chamber of Commerce, 43 Upper Grosvenor Street, London W1K 2NJ.

Time: 5.30 p.m.

The title of Dr. al Sarhan’s talk is Arab States Calling for Moderate Islam: The Case of Saudi Arabia. There have been recent efforts by Arab states (including by the UAE, Jordan, Morocco and Egypt) to shift to a moderate Islam. This lecture will focus on the specific efforts of Saudi Arabia in this regard and will analyse them in their historical context within the Kingdom, as well as comparing them with the efforts of other Arab states.

Dr. al Sarhan is the Secretary-General of the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies. He is an Associate Fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) at King’s College, London, and is on the Board of Prince Saud Al Faisal Institute of Diplomatic Studies, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Saudi Arabia. He is also Editor-in-chief of the journal Islam and The Contemporary World.
