A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

THE DEBATE

THE DEBATE

Latest update : 2010-12-15

Islamophobia and extremism

A far-right political leader compares Muslims praying in the streets to the occupation of France by Nazi Germany. A woman sacked for wearing the Muslim veil at a pre-school loses her appeal and a British-based Islamist blows himself up on a busy street in Stockholm. Europe's Muslim minority is in the spotlight once again and uncomfortable questions are being asked: integration, extremism and islamophobia are terms which elicit strong reactions from all sides of the political divide.

A debate with Laura Baines and Guests:

Fouad AL-OBAID, Columnist for Kuwait Times
Laurent CHAMBON, Researcher for www.Minorites.org (by satellite from Amsterdam)
Jocelyne CESARI, Director of the Islam in the West Program at Harvard Center for Middle Eastern Studies (by satellite from Cambridge, MA)
Tariq RAMADAN, Professor of Islamic Studies at Saint Anthony’s College, Oxford University (by phone from Doha, Qatar)
