    Passing the Torch: Lessons Learned for Future Generations of Women Advocates, features special guest Shirin Ebadi, the first Muslim woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Ebadi is also the first woman appointed as judge in Iran, where she was subsequently barred from her post after the Islamic Revolution on the basis of her gender. Returning to the courts as a private lawyer to defend controversial political and human rights cases led to her own incarceration and 25 days in solitary confinement.

Every year, the Centre organizes an Annual Lecture Series, in which prominent scholars researching areas pertinent to Muslim peoples and cultures present their current research in a free lecture, open to the wider public. Our Annual Lecture Series is very popular, and registration in advance is highly recommended as seats fill up.
