The Veil Debate - Un Dialogue de Sourds: Alaa Badr

The debate on the veil is neither political nor cultural. It is not religious; it’s psychological. It is a manifestation of a “liberalism of fear” and “a retour du Nationalisme Identitaire.” The arguments against SciencesPo Hijab Day are internally coherent, however they are based on inaccurate assumptions, and this is why the current debate is a “dialogue of the deaf” where people are talking past each other with no real conclusions to offer.
