THEME: Islamic Theocracy and Modernism: Issues and Challenges

The most widespread struggle in the world today is arguably the attempt to enthrone Islamic theocracy in various degrees, with varying strategies, targeting various extents of territorial reach with different levels of cultural heterogeneity. The tendency is being driven by a nostalgia for the golden era of Islam, the desire to resist the dominance of the West and its unipolar world-view as well as the quest of certain Muslim individuals for political power, among other factors. Nigeria has a fair share of the struggle for Islamic theocracy on its territory with grave consequences. Debates are raging among Muslims of different hues and tendencies about the desirability and sustainability of pristine Islamic theocracy in the contemporary world. Much as the desire of Muslims to live according to the Shariah of Islam is unassailable as it is their fundamental human right, the world is yet to reach a consensus on the context for the exercise of this right. This is what makes Islamic theocracy problematic. While it may be conceivable that an Islamic theocracy can be democratically elected in a Muslim majority country, what becomes of it in a Muslim minority country? What are the possible challenges of enthroning Islamic theocracy along with modern democracy?Clear option is to review the atavistic conception of Islamic theocracy with a view to generating its variants that are capable of universal application. Nigeria’s experience with sharia application in its multicultural and multi religious environment offers a credible platform for moving forward the debate on applicability of Islamic theocracy in the contemporary world....read more about the 2018 CONFERENCE ON ISLAM IN NIGERIA CALL FOR PAPERS

Since immediately after her independence, Nigeria has continually faced existential problem which led to a civil war barely seven years after. Although the civil war ended over four decades ago, the disunity which engendered it has failed to disappear and has even aggravated in some cases. The disunity has now permeated virtually every segment of society. While the cliche often touted is that Nigeria's unity is not negotiable, there is palpable fear in all quarters that the country could disintegrate at the slightest snap. The consequences of disunity for Nigeria are dire, hence the need for concerted efforts to build a truly united country.

2016 CONFERENCE ON ISLAM IN NIGERIA (COIN)

ISLAMIC WELFARE FOUNDATION In collaboration with INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ISLAMIC THOUGHT, BAYERO UNIVERSITY, KANO, NIGERIA Announces her 2016 CONFERENCE ON ISLAM IN NIGERIA (COIN) Call for Papers The world has come to a consensus that corruption is the major bane of Nigeria's progress. It has pushed Nigeria to the precipice and the country will go under unless the scourge is arrested. While there is a broad agreement both locally and internationally that there is need to fight corruption, there is little agreement on how the fight should proceed. This lack of agreement on how to fight corruption in Nigeria results from a poor understanding of corruption as a phenomenon which in turn obscures its real causes and confuses how it can be dealt with.
