Khaled Abou El Fadl on the Islamic Ethics that could guide issues of migration. A powerful talk in which Dr. Abou El Fadl explores what the Islamic message reveals about modern day issues of migration, refugees and the realities of oppression, and the potential to go beyond international law norms to elevate current standards of humanitarian practice.
Dr. Abou El Fadl delivers the keynote lecture via Skype entitled, "Islamic Ethics, Human Rights and Migration" for the conference on "Migration and Islamic Ethics: Issues of Residence, Naturalization and Citizenship" sponsored by the Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE) in Doha, Qatar. In his keynote, Dr. Abou El Fadl speaks first about the Muslim perspective, then discusses the international law that governs issues of migration, and finally, his own view of the Islamic moral impulses that could guide issues of migration; a tradition that could be developed as a matter of Islamic normativity, but that as of yet, has not.
