In this talk, Daniel Philpott, professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame, will draw on his newly published book, “Religious Freedom In Islam: The Fate of a Universal Human Right in the Muslim World Today” (Oxford University Press, 2019), to address the culture war over Islam. Philpott will explain why and how religious freedom can be expanded in the Muslim world, and how the Catholic Church's own journey to religious freedom can help. 

Philpott has worked on peace building and reconciliation in Kashmir and the Great Lakes region of Africa.

His talk is one of the Deitchman Family Lectures on Religion and Modernity.
