An international symposium was held on April 2 & 3, 2009 at the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs of Syracuse University.

The Religion, Media and International Affairs Project (RMIA), funded through a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, hosted this culminating event for the three year project, an international conference which included presentations by leading journalists who have worked in the Middle East.

This symposium investigated the reciprocal influences of the press, religion and political power in the Muslim world by addressing the implications of the following questions:

:: How are Islamic communities using old and new media to promote their messages?
:: How is the non-Muslim media interacting with the Muslim world through the use of old and new media?

Special attendees included visiting fellows from the Middle East and North Africa as part of the Leaders for Democracy program at the Maxwell School for Citizenship & Public Affairs.
