In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Welcome to the The Long View, a quarterly magazine from Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC). As the name suggests, the essays commissioned for this journal aim to look in depth and look forward. The type of work that occupies IHRC and other human rights and social justice organisations, is often by necessity a response to ongoing events. Whether it is limits on funds and human resources, or just the scale of immediate problems that need immediate solutions, reactive work and analyses are the norm of Muslim and indeed wider civil society particularly in Westernised* settings.
The Long View attempts to provide a space for thinkers to analyse in the long term and (kick)start or continue conversations on the same.
