WASHINGTON -- In his critically acclaimed new book, Reflections on the Revolution in Europe, columnist Christopher Caldwell frames the issue of Muslim immigration to Europe and argues that Islam has challenged the European way of life at every turn.
Europe has undergone a demographic revolution it never expected. Europe is — for the first time in its modern history — a continent of immigrants, with 40 million of the 375 million total European populations living outside their countries of birth. By overestimating its need for immigrant labor and underestimating the culture-shaping potential of religion, Europe has trapped itself in a problem to which it has no obvious solution.
Author Christopher Caldwell will keynote the event. Caldwell is a columnist for the Financial Times, a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine, and a Senior Editor at The Weekly Standard. Commenting on the book will be Hillel Fradkin, Senior Fellow and Director of Hudson's Center on Islam, Democracy, and the Future of the Muslim World; Hassan Mneimneh, Visiting Fellow with Hudson Institute and former Director of the Iraq Memory Foundation; and Justin Vaisse, a Senior Fellow with Brookings Institution's Center on the U.S. and Europe and a former adviser on the Policy Planning Staff of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Hudson CEO Kenneth Weinstein will introduce the event.
Lunch will be served and copies of the book will be available for sale.
