The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), a member of College of Islamic Studies (CIS) in Hamad Bin Khalifa University, cordially invites you to the upcoming public lecture titled:
Ethical Dilemmas in Current Migration and Refugee Experiences: Muslim Perspectives
It will be held on January 29th, 2018 from 7 to 9 pm in the Auditorium at the College of Islamic Studies building.
In this lecture, our panel of speakers will address contemporary ethical problems concerning migrants and refugees and the following questions will be discussed:
- How is the nation state affected by the intake of asylum-seekers, refugees and/or economic/labour migrants?
- How does this affect the implementation of ethical principles regarding human equality, where only citizens belonging to the nation state can enjoy full rights?
- How can the higher objectives of Sharia (Maqasid) be implemented in relation to refugees and migrants?
- Are the obligations at the level of the nation state, or are they only responsibilities at the level of the individual?
