Muslim Meetings of Japan

Person in Charge of the Project : Yo Nonaka

In our project, some key mosque officials throughout Japan and those working in other Muslim communities get together at Keio University and discuss issues on symbiosis in Japanese society and their direction of resolution, then publish joint statements. We have carried out the meetings four times since 2015. The themes up to now are the Muslim Community (August 2015), Halal (August 2016), Islamic Education for Muslim Teenagers (February 2017), Dawa (Call for Faith) (August 2017).
