Dr Souad T Ali, a Ful­bright Scholar, is the Found­ing Chair of the Coun­cil for Ara­bic and Is­lamic Stud­ies at Ari­zona State Univer­sity (ASU); and served as Head of Clas­sics and Mid­dle East Stud­ies. On Oc­to­ber 10, 2016, she gave a lec­ture en­ti­tled ‘A Fo­cus on the Peace­ful Message of the Qu­ran: En­gen­der­ing Peace through Fe­male Roles’. The lec­ture en­com­passed the role women can play us­ing their knowl­edge of peace in Is­lam to help mem­bers of their com­mu­ni­ties ne­go­ti­ate and prac­tice peace­ful co­ex­is­tence. In ad­di­tion, it fo­cused on the East African coun­try Su­dan and the West African coun­try Nige­ria and the role Mus­lim women play in en­gen­der­ing peace. The model dis­cussed can open greater av­enues for women from around the world to di­rect their ed­u­ca­tion to­wards em­pha­siz­ing a cul­ture of peace, and to share ex­pe­ri­ences on how to move from con­flict and war to rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and peace
