Event description

Description

Title: ‘Islam - Another British Religion?’

Speaker: James Fergusson

James Fergusson is an award-winning author and foreign correspondent, specializing in Islamic affairs. His book on Nato’s campaign in southern Afghanistan, A Million Bullets (2008), was the British Army’s Military Book of the Year. The World’s Most Dangerous Place (2013), about Somalia, was short-listed for the Orwell Prize. His latest book, Al-Britannia, My Country (2017), which argues for a new approach to Britain’s growing Muslim community, was described by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams as ‘a seriously necessary book.’ He is currently researching a book on water politics in Israel-Palestine. He is married with four children and lives in Edinburgh.

Chair: Martin Shipton, Media Wales Chief Reporter and Father of the National Union of Journalists Chapel in Cardiff
