FREE LECTURE: Islam and the Community: Panel Discussion
|Islam and the Community: Panel Discussion : This panel discussion will engage with the various reactions to current national security policy in Australia
There are some students and individuals of Muslim background who feel
that they are being targeted through the new focus on anti-terrorism moves
taken by the Federal Government. There is also concern among students
and members of the wider community about perceived dangers posed by
Muslim community members to their safety and society.
Given these fears, it is important to open the space for discussion among
stakeholders and members of the students and wider community. This
panel will discuss the following;
• What has been done to counter possible threats of terrorism?
• What is their perceived impact on communal harmony?
• How can government agencies and the general public across
religious, ethnic and educational backgrounds work together to
ensure that Australia’s positive record as a multicultural society is
