A 'Young Scholar' at Istanbul G20 Interfaith Summit

Religion, Harmony and Sustainable Development

UCL Geography PhD researcher, Kat Eghdamian, was a Special Guest, as a Young Scholar, at the G20 Interfaith Summit in Istanbul between 16-18 November.

The summit brought together scholars, lawyers and political leaders with faith and interfaith leaders from around the world for three days of discussion and dialogue, as a contribution to the G20 Economic Forum.

Kat presented her research examining the role of religion in humanitarianism, with a specific focus on the Syria refugee crisis and the experiences of religious minorities in Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan.

Before the Summit, Kat was interviewed by ABC Radio National on the matters she intended to raise at the event, and was later quoted in The Washington Post in an article responding to the question of whether religion should determine refugee status.
