The Pardee School of Global Studies‘ inaugural international conference,  Youth in the Contemporary Muslim World, brought together scholars, activists, artists, film-makers, and NGO practitioners to explore the multiple ways that Muslim youth are dealing with political challenges, neoliberal and structural changes in their lives, the means by which they are negotiating new and continuing religious and moral conflicts, and how they are using art and culture to express identities that often oppose government policies but just as often address cross-cultural exchanges throughout the Muslim world.

The conference was sponsored in part by the Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies & Civilizations. This report captures the panels and discussions as expressed on April 8-9, 2015.
