Can Social Media Bridge Divides Between Diverse Muslim and Western Communities?

Social media is today a critical platform where global youth communicate and express their political interests. But can these new technologies also play a role in bridging divides between communities?

Posing this question in the crucial context of relations between diverse Muslim and Western communities, the World Peace Foundation at The Fletcher School will welcome:

Farah Anwar Pandith (@Farah_Pandith), U.S. special representative to Muslim communities;
Riyaad Minty (@Riy), head of social media at Al Jazeera (@AJArabic & @AJEnglish).
