Due to the vulcanic ash fall, the presentation of Christine Cabasset on Wednesday forum is cancelled and replaced by Dr. Rodtke’s lecture on “Politic Islam in Global Term.”

If the Arab Spring was not originally motivated by the will to create an Islamic State, then by what? Why Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwanul Muslimin) failed? What does the call for an Islamic State entail? Is the Salafi paradigm more than a nostalgic illusion? What has become of the traditional schools of law? Are there alternatives that make better use of the established modes of “living Islam” and are more compatible with the modern nation state? These are some of the questions will be discussed in the lecture.

 

Dr. Andreas Radtke is the political cousellor in German Embassy, Jakarta, Indonesia. He earned his Ph.D from Free University, Berlin, with his thesis “Revelation between Law and History: Source studies on the framework of early Muslim legal thought”.

He was Economic Counsellor, German Embassy, Canberra (2010 – 2013); Parliament Liaison, EU Affairs, Foreign Office, Berlin (2008 – 2010); Personal Adviser to EU Special Envoy for the Middle East, Brussels and various Middle Eastern countries (2003 – 2005).
