CONVENERS.ORG MEMBER EVENT
Omar Saif Ghobash, Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Russia and author of Letters to a Young Muslim, comes to World Affairs to share his insights on what it means to be Muslim today. Although many Muslims are moderate and peaceful, media coverage of terrorist attacks by radical Islamist organizations had increasingly contributed to stereotyping and unfair targeting. Ghobash’s book showcases a series of letters offering his two young sons a way to navigate these challenges. Program will be followed by a Q&A.
