ADHOC Organization First Conference Brussels, 22 May 2016

With the support of “i Think magazine” and “NPWJ”

ADHOC: “The roots and causes of Islamic violence? Secularism is the solution”

Brussels, 22 May 2016

Since the broke out of the Arab Spring in 2011, the clash between factions of the Middle Eastern and

North African societies has become clear. It occurs between those who want to get back to the last

centuries under the emblem of religion and those who want to promote the establishment of open

societies based on principles of secularity, pluralism and modernity. In the same time, we have all

witnessed the spread of religious extremism among some countries of the Middle East, North Africa

and beyond. We have also assisted to the rise of Daesh and its trail of atrocities in Syria and Iraq, which

represent the culmination of a distorted and radical vision of Islam embodied in acts of terrorism,

intolerance and violence.

It is therefore essential to coordinate and reinforce the voices of the grassroots activists who strive to

address the challenges of religious extremism and anchor the future of their countries on the principles

of secularism and pluralism. To this end, the newly established organisation “ADHOC: Secular,

Modernist and Pluralist” is organising its first conference under the title “The roots and causes of

Islamic violence? Secularism is the solution”, which will take place in Brussels on Sunday 22 May

2016.

The conference will bring together prominent writers, intellectuals and scholars from Middle Eastern

and North African countries and take the format of two interactive dialogue sessions. Panellists will

include the Syrian poet Adunis, the Palestinian writer Waleed Al-Husseine, Kacem El Ghazzali, a

secularist writer and minorities rights activist, Rabab Kamal, Radio broadcaster and liberal writer,

Ayman Ghoujal, human rights activist, and the Egyptian writer Sayed Elkemani.

Background

“ADHOC: Secular, Modernist and Pluralist” is an international non-governmental organisation,

headquartered in London, with branches in various countries of the world. Its purpose is to help

spreading a civil and modern culture of freethought, tolerance and pluralism in the Middle East and

North Africa, and to promote the constitution of civil, modern and progressive societies which separate

religion from politics and cancelling all the violations and discriminations under the title of civilized and

cultural particularities. ADHOC carries out its work in cooperation with economic and social activists

as well as all the national and international organizations which fight against all forms of extremism,

intolerance and violence.
