  Ambassador Akbar Ahmed

Ambassador Akbar S. Ahmed is the Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies at American University in Washington DC, and is considered by many to be the world’s leading authority on contemporary Islam. As High Commissioner of Pakistan to Great Britain, Dr. Ahmed has advised Prince Charles and President George W. Bush on Islam.

Dr. Ahmed is Principal Investigator for “Islam in the Age of Globalization,” a project supported by The Brookings Institution (where he is also a senior fellow), American University and The Pew Research Center. His numerous books, films and documentaries have received widespread acclaim. He is regularly interviewed on CNN, CBC, and the BBC, among other news organizations, and he has appeared several times on the “Oprah Winfrey Show” and “Nightline.” He has also presented and narrated “The Glories of Islamic Art,” a three-part television series broadcast in England.

In February 2005 the National Cathedral held a special Evensong Service to honor Dr. Ahmed. He spoke at the Chairman’s Distinguished Speakers Lecture Series at the Pentagon and gave the inaugural lectures for the first Chair in Jewish-Muslim Studies at the University of Illinois-Chicago. He was also the first Muslim to lecture at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC. Among many honors, he was a finalist with Dr. Judea Pearl in the “Most Inspiring Person of the Year 2005” poll conducted by BeliefNet.
