SEPADPod: Shadi Hamid
14th Feb 2019 by Dr. Simon Mabon
On this episode of SEPADPod Simon speaks with Shadi Hamid, a senior fellow in the Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World in the Center for Middle East Policy and the author of "Islamic Exceptionalism: How the Struggle Over Islam is Reshaping the World" (St. Martin's Press. He is also co-editor with Will McCants of “Rethinking Political Islam” (Oxford University Press) and co-author of “Militants, Criminals, and Warlords: The Challenge of Local Governance in an Age of Disorder” (Brookings Institution Press). In a fascinating conversation Simon and Shadi talks about the impact of 9/11 on his identity, the study of Islamist movements, the role of religion in political life, sectarian schisms and intra-Sunni differences. One really not to be missed.
