Religious Interventions in US Foreign Policy @ Islam, Secularism and Security in Central Asia and Beyond, Chatham House, 2014

On Thursday 13th and Friday 14th November, 2014, John Heathershaw, David Lewis, Gregorio Bettiza and Edward Lemon from the Department of Politics and Rob Gleave from the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter will be participating in a workshop at Chatham House entitled ‘Islam, Secularism and Security in Central Asia and Beyond.’ The workshop is the first of two, the second of which is to be held in April 2015 in Washington DC, and is funded by a grant awarded to John Heathershaw through the British Council’s Bridging Voices Programme. The first day will be a closed session, attended by scholars, government officials and practitioners from both sides of the Atlantic; the meeting on the second day will be open to the wider public and will be used to launch John Heathershaw’s Chatham House Research Paper, co-authored with David W. Mongomery from the University of Pittsburgh, USA. The paper will be freely available to download from the Chatham House website following the launch.
