Course info

The main goal of this unique course is to provide to the participants basic knowledge of Islam: its origins, organization, Islamic Law, rituals, philosophy and manifestations of Muslim culture. It will also provide the first insight into the political and geographical context of development of Muslim community around the world. We will explore the global conflict areas and their outcomes for State’s internal security (from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, through Africa, Asia, up to EU and US). The final lecture will be devoted to the process of radicalization of Islam, its forms and expressions, terrorist organizations (Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra, Boko-Haram) and so-called “spill-over effect” of these tensions into Western countries, in particular EU.
