The call will feature Mr. Suhail A. Khan, Senior Fellow Muslim-Christian Understanding at the Institute for Global Engagement. Mr. Khan served as Legal Counsel and Policy Director on Capitol Hill, in the Bush Administration in the White House, where he was responsible for outreach to Muslim and Asian-American communities after 9/11. As a Senior Fellow for Muslim-Christian Understanding at IGE he has participated in multiple dialogues on religion and politics in the Middle East and Asia, most recently as an IGE delegate to The Third Sino-U.S. Counterterrorism Symposium in Beijing.
