'The Arab Spring' and its Aftermath: Implications for Muslim-Christian relations
Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali
Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali was the first non-white Diocesan Bishop in the Church of England, and for 15 years was the 106th Bishop of Rochester. Before then, he was the Bishop of Raiwind in Pakistan. By virtue of his seniority as an Anglican bishop, Pakistan-born Nazir-Ali served as a parliamentarian in the British House of Lords. He has long been a pioneer in Christian-Muslim dialogue, having headed his Church's dialogue with Al Azhar Univer and with Iran. Born and raised in Pakistan, Nazir-Ali holds degrees in Economics, Sociology and Islamic History from the University of Karachi and degrees in Theology from Fitzwilliam College and Ridley Hall, Cambridge, St Edmund Hall, Oxford and the Australian College of Theology. He is currently the President of OXTRAD (The Oxford Center for Training, Research, Advocacy and Dialogue).
Bishop Nazir-Ali is the author of 11 books, among them: Frontiers in Christian-Muslim Encounters (Regnum, 1987)
Conviction and Conflict: Islam, Christianity and World Order (Continuum, 2006)
Triple Jeopardy for the West: Aggressive Secularism, Radical Islamism and Multiculturalism (Bloomsbury, 2012)
He has written many articles in journals and newspapers.
