Evening Salon / Thurs 3 Oct / 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Author, broadcaster, and political counsellor Tarek Osman discusses the role of faith systems in today’s identity politics, and looks at ‘Islamism’ in particular in the experiences of Middle Eastern societies. Debated at large, this vague term almost prevents us from having meaningful discussions. Tarek sheds light on its manifold complexities and scans the long history of political Islam, from the Ottoman Empire to the recent developments across the Middle East, to help us make sense of the manifestation of faith in society and governance.


Tarek Osman is a renowned author, scholar and broadcaster, specialising in the Arab world and the Middle East region. He writes for leading international newspapers and appears as a commentator on major international news networks. He has 17 years of experience in political-economy advisory, consulting and investment banking.
