Social Ethics – On Fair Social Order

Ethical Questions in Judaism and Islam (video recording available)

In Judaism and Islam, inviting the faithful to pursue justice is central. It is intended, however, not only as an individual virtue, but also as a fundament that should shape the life of society. Ingrid Mattson, professor of Islamic Studies, Huron College of Western University in Canada, and Micha Brumlik, senior advisor at the Berlin-Brandenburg Center of Jewish Studies, will discuss how Judaism and Islam conceive a just society and which conditions and standards they must observe to live up to this ideal. The discussion focuses on concrete social systems that should come closest to this ideal.
Moderated by Dr. Alina Gromova
