Universite catholique de Louvain and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven jointly honored Abdullahi An-Na‘im, Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law and CSLR Senior Fellow, with the degree of doctor honoris causa, the highest distinction awarded by their institutions, during ceremonies February 2.

An-Na‘im received the honorary doctorate for his activities and commitments that have “contributed to greater openness and to the dialogue between cultures, ideas and peoples,” according to the universities.

As part of the festivities, An-Na‘im lectured and responded to a series of panels titled “Islam and the Secular State” in Leuven, and he gave an informal lecture discussing European Muslims.

Locally, An-Na’im gave the Emory University Distinguished Faculty lecture February 4.
