The first Intellectual Forum (IF) was held last Monday, November 10, 2014, where Yasmine Zein Al-Abedine presented a review on a book entitled "Religious Identity and National Heritage: Empirical- Theological Perspectives" (2012). The following discussion among FEPS academic staff was about the flexibility of identity, the relationship between religious and national identities, the main components of identity and, finally, the international dimension.
FEPS-IF is held on a bi-weekly basis, every time introducing a new idea, book or academic contribution by one of FEPS academic staff. This aims at creating a community of critical thinking at FEPS in specific and FUE in general in the field of social sciences.
Yasmine Zein Al-Abedine is an Assistant Lecturer of Political Science, Faculty of Economics and Political Science (FEPS), Future University in Egypt.
