Ideas from Exeter reach the world!

Exciting news! Karima Bennoune’s 2014 TEDxExeter talk “Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here” has been selected as one of TEDx’s Weekly Editor’s Picks. This is a huge achievement and offers a real opportunity for her ideas to reach a significant, global audience.

A veteran of twenty years of human rights research and activism, Karima Bennoune draws on extensive fieldwork and interviews to illuminate the inspiring stories of those who represent one of the best hopes for ending fundamentalist oppression worldwide. In this powerful talk Karima gives voice to individual Muslims struggling against fundamentalism and terrorism.

Karima is a professor of international law at the University of California Davis School of Law. She grew up in Algeria and the United States and now lives in northern California.
