Marc Gopin, director of George Mason’s Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution at the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, led a panel discussion last week on issues that may affect the new George Mason campus in Ras al Khaimah. The examination of minority and inter-religious relations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) looked at national and cultural identification, the issue of migrant workers in the UAE and the role of Arab tribal customs and the Emiratis’ interpretation of Sunni Islamic religious law.
