Islam & Liberty Network

Our mission is to advance the understanding of religious, political, and economic freedom for peace and prosperity in Muslim majority countries and beyond.

We were founded in 2011 to bring together researchers, academics, and public intellectuals to demonstrate the consistency of the universal values of religious, political and economic freedom with Islam. Our research outputs show that Islam is not just consistent with freedom; indeed Islam requires freedom.

Our annual programme includes an international conference, training workshops, and publishing articles, papers, podcasts and webinars which reach thousands of interested individuals.

Islam and Liberty Network was awarded Asia Liberty Award for 2020 for “establishing a Muslim case for free society” for its work in Asia and Middle East.

Legally the Islam & Liberty Network is registered as a Labuan foundation in Malaysia. It is governed by our international Council.
