Harmony Centre’s Mohamed Imran will share salient learning points from his trip to Andalusia (Southern Spain) last year, where the concept of “la convivencia” (the coexistence) was a strong feature in the communal lives of Jewish, Christian and Muslim lives in pre-modern Mediterranean Europe. What can we learn from this episode and how can interfaith relations move forward amidst the baggage of history at the onset of modernity where Christian-Muslim relations, in particular, took a sharp turn?
