U.S. Engagement with Muslim Asia since September 11, 2001
In commemoration of the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, NBR hosted a private discussion workshop in November 2006 to assess U.S. engagement with Muslim Asia since 2001. Drawing on NBR’s research on Muslim societies in Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Eurasia, panelists addressed the dynamics among politics, religion, and society in Muslim Asia, with particular attention to current perceptions of the West; the driving forces behind growing anti-Americanism and support for Islamist ideas; and the implications of current social and political trends for the United States.
A summary of the discussion workshop is available below:
