At tomorrow’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) brown bag lecture, Nabyl Eddahar presents a new paradigm for the study of Islamic movements within the dynamics of social change in Islamic societies. The public is invited to the presentation, which is part of a series of informal lectures on research and practice of conflict resolution.

Eddahar, a specialist in ethnic conflict, addresses “The Relevance of the Historical and Cultural Dimensions in Conflict Analysis in Islamic Societies: The Case of Morocco.” Eddahar is a Fulbright visiting scholar from the University of Hassan II at Casablanca, Morocco. In his talk, he focuses on Morocco, which is polarized over how to improve, whether by Western-style modernization or by one based in history and tradition.

The lecture is from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the ICAR Main Conference Room, A401, located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax.
