Did you know that Indonesia has the world's largest Muslim population—which overwhelmingly rejects religious extremism including violence, formation of an Islamic state, and the imposition of sharia law?


Please Note: Due to a scheduling conflict, Ambassador Budi Bowoleksono will no longer be able to join us for the panel discussion. Ardian Wicaksono will join us for our panel discussion in the Ambassador’s place. Mr. Wicaksono is the Counselor for Political Affairs at the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Washington D.C.  

Join us for an engaging and insightful conversation among Indonesian Counselor for Political Affairs Ardian Wicaksono, Indonesian Muslim clerics Imam Shamsi Ali and Ustadzah Fauziah Fauzan, Dr. Ronald Lukens-Bull, Professor of Anthropology and Religious Studies, Dr. Julie Ingersoll, Professor of Religious Studies, and facilitator, Dr. Parvez Ahmed, UNF professor of finance and a frequent writer about the American Muslim experience.
