Interview of Sheik Prof. Kamal BORAIQA ABDELASALM by Trivalent team

Sheik Prof. Kamal BORAIQA ABDELASALM

Coordinator:
AL AZHAR OBSERVATORY FOR COMBATTING TERRORISM
Al Azhar University – Cairo (Egypt)
AL AZHAR CENTER FOR THE INTERFAITH DIALOGUE
Al Azhar University – Cairo (Egypt)

Head:
OBSERVATION AND SUGGESTION COMMITTEE AT THE EGYPTIAN FAMILY HOUSE

New York – October 5, 2018
“Education is one of the most important and powerful elements for countering the jihadist narrative”

AbdAllah Massimo Cozzolino, Chairman of the Advisory Board – Trivalent, interviewed Prof. Kamal BORAIQA ABDELASALM, coordinator of the Observatory of radicalization at the University of Al Azahar, in a while of the 2nd Conference on Cultural Rapprochement between United States of America and Muslim world, New York, 4- 5 ottobre 2018.
The Observatory of Al Azhar University at local, regional and even international levels has been improving significantly since the last presidential election in 2014 – due to the fact that is a strategic partner in the battle against the rising tide of Islamic terror and the religious rhetoric of terrorist organizations. The Al Azhar Institute, which was established by the Fatimids in the year 972, is considered to be the most promise and influential educational institution in the Sunni Muslim world since 1172.
The observatory studies the drivers of radicalization and extreme violence in various contexts, in their various forms and in their political and religious dimensions, in order to make this eminently complex phenomenon intelligible without reducing it to “radical Islamism”.
The Observatory aims to analyze the urban geography of violent radicalization through an in-depth approach to family processes and a history of difficult districts, as well as to compare the public policies implemented at the local and national levels.
