(p.67) VIII Institutional Developments
The Middle Path of Moderation in Islam

Mohammad Hashim Kamali

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the institutional developments and practical measures taken by Muslim countries and leaders in order to entrench wasaṭiyyah in the conduct of their domestic affairs and in their relations with the outside world. Almost all of the six institutional setups discussed in this chapter, alongside the two landmark initiatives, namely the Amman Message, and “A Common Word,” show the efforts that Muslims are making in developing a constructive conversation with other faith traditions and civilizations. The chapter also reviews three other developments, namely the Inter-Civilisational Dialogue initiative, the UN Alliance of Civilisations, and the Global Movement of Moderates.
