Abstract

For centuries, the concept of jihad has been misunderstood and equated with “Holy War” and violence. In a post-September 11 world, Islam itself has increasingly become associated with intolerance, violence and terrorism. Pundits have coined the terms Jihadism and jihadists as a new ideological counterforce to the West, globalization, and democratic values. In his lecture, Professor Emad Shahin makes distinctions between jihad and fighting/war in Islam. He will examine the different theories of jihad in Islam, the theo-ries of war and combat, and the conditions and manner under which violence is conducted. He will ana-lyze the ideas of major contemporary Islamic thinkers who have influenced the perception and the use of jihad in modern times, how the concept has been applied by certain movements, and the structural caus-es behind violence.  Shahin will also address the ethics of peace in Islam and the major theories that focus on the principles of peace in Islam. He will analyze the factors that impede the spread and imple-mentation of these peaceful values.
