Dedicated to increasing our knowledge and awareness of the ever-growing diversity and pluralism of global society, Forum A. & A. Leysen has initiated a debate/lecture series, with a focus on Islam in todays world and in Europe in particular. Well-known influential authoritieseach an active participant in the public debate on the global role of Islam past, present, and futurepresented papers at the several Intercultural Relations meetings sponsored by Forum A. & A. Leysen. These important contributions, on the topic Islam and Europe: Crises are Challenges, are collected in this volume. A common message emerges from the contributors and all their different points of view: only dialogueon the one hand between the West (countries that manifest themselves as Western Democratic constitutional states) and Islam, and on the other hand within and among societies historically identified with Islamwill overcome entrenched confrontation and negative animosity. Such dialogue will engender new possibilities and understandings, and, by encouraging free and critical thinking, pave the way to social equity and the scientific innovation that may lead to more prosperity. In the course of the meetings all talks led to fascinating debates. This book includes the papers presented during the period January 2008 to January 2009. Although the question of how to actually construct the dialogue remains unsettled, this pioneering book takes a giant step toward an answer.
