From September 14 to 16, the International Symposium ISLAM and INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY was held at the Senriyama Campus.
Since the democratization movement "Arab Spring", some countries in the Middle East and North Africa region have been in a state of political unrest, as seen in the case of the Islamic State problem. Under the situation, KU held the symposium aiming to understand the actual circumstance of the Islamic world as well as to define Japan's position in the current world.
