The issues to tackled included:
- Means and methods of creating an alliance of the middle way that is robust, pro-active and scholarly-driven
- Understanding all forms of extremism and how best to respond to them
- How to cope in a diverse world through reclaiming and implementing the Islamic understanding of adab al-ikhtilaf (etiquettes of difference).
- Challenges poised by climate change, social cohesion and peaceful coexistence.
- Challenges and opportunities of Islam in the West and the prospects for majority-minority engagement.
