The notion of Islamic Liberation Theology is inspired by a need for opening up a space for intellectually rigorous and socially committed explorations between decolonial thinking and studies of Islam and the Islamicate.
Islamic Liberation Theology does not take Islam as only a spiritual tradition, or a civilization, but also as a possibility of a decolonial epistemic perspective that suggests contributions and responses to liberation struggles around the world.
It offers an opportunity to interpret and understand Muslim phenomena in ways that do not reproduce Eurocentrism or Islamophobia, with a greater emphasis on Islam as a decolonial epistemic framework.
Tariq Ramadan holds an MA in Philosophy and French literature and PhD in Arabic and Islamic Studies from the University of Geneva, and received intensive training in classic Islamic scholarship from Al-Azhar University scholars in Cairo, Egypt. Ramadan is Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University (Oriental Institute, St Antony’s College).
He is active both at the academic and grassroots levels lecturing extensively throughout the world on theology, Islamic law and jurisprudence, applied ethics, philosophy, social justice, economy, politics, interfaith and intracommunity dialogue.
