In this ground-breaking Australian book, a diverse group of international writers, scholars, and commentators shed light on some of the most pressing human rights and public policy challenges of our time. Contributors include thinkers of Muslim background with extensive personal experience in developing countries, and Western writers of both secular and religious orientation. Individual essays deal with the human rights of Muslims and non-Muslims alike, in areas ranging from women's rights to freedom of religion. Another valuable focus is on the challenges of adaptation that immigrant Muslim communities in the west face, as do non-Muslims as they seek to understand and come to terms with different Muslims' world views. Contentious areas of debate such as the sources of religious violence. and the implications of so-called islamisation, are not avoided, but addressed with openness, honesty, and candour. Other specific topics include multi-faith dialogue, Islamic finance, and the nature of Islamic law (Sharia). The book concludes with a set of practical concrete recommendations for individualss directly involved in setting relevant public policies.
