The inaugural Western Indian Ocean Studies workshop entitled 'Rahe Najat (The Path of Salvation): Religious and social dynamics amongst mercantile communities of the western Indian Ocean' was hosted by the department of religious studies from 12-13 November 2015 at the Florida International University in Miami.
The World Federation part sponsors the work of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims, and attended a recent meeting on Yemen.
The discussions, co-chaired by Baroness Hodgson & Keith Vaz MP, revolved around UK foreign policy in Yemen, humanitarian workers in Yemen, the disproportionate impact of the crisis on women and children, & women's role in peace-building. We also attended the "Measuring Impact and Progressive Change" workshop held by the Muslim Charities Forum, where they discussed a bottom-up approach to be led by the UN to achieve a progressive change in Yemen. More information is available on Twitter under the hashtag #mcf4impact.
