Mustafa Akol is an author, journalist, and political commentator. In his talk, he will explore the thesis of his book which argues for Islamic liberalism. Akyol lives in Istanbul, Turkey but his reach is global. Not only does he work appear regularly in the Hurriyet Dalily News and Star newspapers but also in publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and Huffington Post.
Book Review: "Mustafa Akyol traces the often forgotten history of liberalism in Islam and provides an intellectual path for liberalization to flourish today. His case is compelling, coming as it does from someone who is both a faithful Muslim and a committed liberal. This book is a must read for Americans and others of all religious commitments.” — Kris Alan Mauren, Executive Director, Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty
