Ethical Dilemmas in Current Migration and Refugee Experiences: Muslim Perspectives

Monday 29 January 2018, 07.00PM – 09.00PM College of Islamic Studies, Education City, Ar-Rayyan, Qatar

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/labor 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?
