Makers of The Ottomans: Europe's Muslim Emperors to host debate in Hendon today
The makers of a three-part series about the Ottoman Empire will take part in a debate with a human rights expert at Middlesex University today.
Issues raised by the BBC series The Ottomans: Europe's Muslim Emperors will be discussed by the programme’s executive producer Mike Smith, BBC head of religion and ethics, commissioning editor and Middlesex University Professor Aaqil Ahmed and human rights expert Dr Kathleen Cavanaugh.
They will look at what the Ottomans can teach us about minority rights in the Middle East today, what history reveals about tolerance and minority rights across Europe and the Middle East and whether Turkey holds a key to understanding the West's relationship with Islam.
The event will take place from 3.30pm at Middlesex University in The Burroughs, Hendon.
