Muslim millennials are often depicted either as radicalized promoters of Islamic global dominion or champions of democracy. But what do these two competing images tell us about the roughly 450 million young Muslims in the world today? And what, if anything, about the future of Islam?
This forum gathers the voices and stories of a new Muslim generation and asks them to define their vision of Islam in the twenty-first century.
