In March 2012 the Our Shared Future project hosted an invitation-only conference for members of the project’s network in partnership with the University of Cambridge’s Centre of Islamic Studies.

Participants were invited to contribute a short opinion piece on the themes of the conference. 

The submissions were collected in a series of four short e-books, Building a Shared Future. These e-books address four themes on public dialogue around Islam:

  • 'The Power of Words and Images'
  • 'Citizenship and Identity'
  • 'Islam, Knowledge and Innovation'
  •  'Religion, Politics and the Public Sphere'

The e-books can also be found on iTunes and Slideshare.
