Description

Policy & Politics Annual Lecture by Baroness Sayeeda Warsi on Muslim Britain

In association with the Festival of Ideas, Policy & Politics is delighted to welcome Baroness Warsi to give our 29th Annual Lecture.

Description of lecture

Britain has often found groups within its borders whom it does not trust, whom it feels have a belief, culture, practice or agenda which runs contrary to those of the majority. From Catholics to Jews, miners to trade unionists, Marxists to liberals and even homosexuals, all have at times been viewed, described and treated as 'the enemy within'. Muslims are the latest in a long line of 'others' to be given this label.

How did this state of affairs come to pass? What are the lessons and challenges for the future - and how will the tale of Muslim Britain develop? Sayeeda Warsi draws on her own unique position in British life, as the child of Pakistani immigrants, an outsider, who became an insider, the UK's first Muslim Cabinet minister, to explore questions of cultural difference, terrorism, surveillance, social justice, religious freedom, integration and the meaning of 'British values'.


A book signing of The Enemy Within: a Tale of Muslim Britain, on which the talk is based, will follow the lecture.
