Ludwig Ammann, Journalist and Scholar of Islamic Studies, Freiburg

Does Islam lack enlightenment and rationality? Is it generally opposed to democracy and modernity? Muslim reformers throughout the world are currently discussing the present and future situation of Islam, as well as its correct interpretation and place in modern societies. Ludwig Ammann will lecture on diversity and the broadness of this intra-Islamic debate which ranges from the modernisation of Islam to the islamisation of the modern age.
