Symposium "The Future of Islamic Theology and Religious Education in Europe at the Crossroads of Science, Politics and Society" (in German)

27.01.2019

Islamic theological and religious education courses in which Islam is researched and taught from an inside perspective represented an important missing element in the European university landscape until recently.

In the meantime, centres and institutes for Islamic theology and religious education have emerged in various countries and at several locations in Europe, which could not have been dreamed of 15 years ago. The rapid development in the founding phase provides sufficient reason to bring together representatives of the locations, to exchange their experiences, to draw up-to-date conclusions and to reflect on the future establishment processes.

For this purpose, the Department of Islamic Theological Studies of the University of Vienna is organising a symposium on January 27-28, 2019 with the title "Die Zukunft der islamischen Theologie und Religionspädagogik in Europa im Spannungsfeld von Wissenschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft (The Future of Islamic Theology and Religious Education in Europe at the Crossroads of Science, Politics and Society)."
