How to Fix Democracy

Apr 21, 2021

Devil’s Curse of Migration 

Abdul-Rehman Malik is a journalist, community organizer, and Associate Research Scholar and Lecturer in Islamic Studies at Yale Divinity School. Malik and host Andrew Keen address the contradictions of belonging and inclusion. Migrants, they discuss, face these contradictions constantly, seeking belonging in their new homes, but not excluding their own multifaceted identities. If there is a principal Muslim virtue that can aid conceptions of citizenship and fix democracy, Malik concludes, it is mercy--the compassion, empathy, and vitality that holds communities together.
