In the summer of 2009, Iranians took to the streets in protest, an event that some have described as akin to the American civil rights struggle during the 1960s. A younger generation, between the ages of 15 and 29, stands at the forefront of these events, often defining the movement's terms, slogans and direction while taking yesterday's politicians in their tow.

Book Launch and Panel Discussion It is nearly impossible to speak about contemporary Islam without referring to the subject of violence.

There are existing principles, tools, and resources inherent in Islam to promote cooperation and resolve conflict nonviolently.

“Wherever Muslims have the power to regulate, uphold, require, or adjust correct practices, and to condemn, exclude, undermine, or replace incorrect ones, there is the domain of orthodoxy.” --Talal Asad “It is -- to use that word with all its difficulties in an Islamic context -- the ‘orthodoxy’. But changes in ‘orthodoxy’ have always come about by a cumulative pressure that continues to build up outside its nucleus, and when a critical mass is reached the nucleus ‘re-forms’ itself." --Fazlur Rahman While scholars positioned both inside and outside the Islamic tradition have long classified strands of thought and practice within…
