Recently Dr. Anver Emon, (Director of Institute of Islamic Studies ) visited Simon Fraser University to discuss the role of academia in countering the damaging legacy of stereotypes about Islam and Muslims.

You can now watch a recording of the discussion between Dr. Emon and Dr. Amyn B. Sajoo as they discussed topics such as: the (mis)understandings of Sharia Law, concepts of Governance in Islamic Law vs. Western Law, the securitization of Muslim, interdisciplinary collaborations in Islamic Studies, and many more.
