The Future of Relations with the Muslim World

Wednesday, July 21, 2010 - 6:30pm

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, Global Expert Finder and the World Policy Institute present:

A panel debate at The New York Times:
"The Future of Relations with the Muslim World"


This event is the first in a series of Global Expert Finder debates from the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC).

One year after President Obama's Cairo speech, with no sign of an Israel-Palestine peace deal, a deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan, and the ongoing nuclear standoff with Iran, is the 'new beginning' initiative stalled?

How significant is the role of the Arab-Israeli conflict in widening the gap between communities in the US, Europe and the 'Muslim world'? Is progress on the Middle East front a sine qua non for the improvement of Muslim-West relations?
