Aims and Scope

The formation of this dialogue is vital since it can lead to the development of academic approaches that challenges mainstream academic approaches in addressing issues affecting the Muslim world. Correspondingly the creation of this academic critical dialogue improves the possibility for elaborating academic approaches which concerns regional and local theorising and policy making.
