Breakout session on 'Religion, Peace and Conflict'. Third talk, Imam Monawar Hussein, Eton College and Central Oxford Mosque, on 'Sources for Peacebuilding in Islam.'

My talk will revolve around exploring what the primary sources of Islam - the Qur'an and Hadith, have to say about peacemaking and peacebuilding but I shall also seek to draw on specific examples from the 'sirah' literature on the life of the Prophet. Can we extrapolate certain principles from the life of the Prophet that may contribute to a 'model' for potential peacemaking and peacebuilding in contemporary conflicts?
